This innovative technology maximizes passenger
comfort and the systemís operational efficiency by displaying
real-time passenger load information on LCD screens at station

vehicleís braking system and then transmit the information to the
passengers waiting at the next stop via a third-party vendor.

capacity of each car: green represents a high probability of
available seating, yellow for partially full and red for full.

better distribute passenger load while also improving the trainsí
