Commuting Safely

Rental vehicles

Perhaps the government could mandate that rental car companies make available rental cars at a reduced price for those that have to commute and do not want to chance taking public transportation?

US Patent 8643507 Vehicle-Based Threat Detection System (VBTDS)

All weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in all forms (CBRNE) may be detected in all vehicles. This includes COVID-19. The airborne SARS detection claim (using photonics) was already made in the biochip patent issued more than 15 years ago to Dr. Tuan Vo-Dinh at Oak Ridge National Lab. Since 9/11, a wide variety of government agencies have been hesitant to certify VBTDS capabilities even though the various sensor technologies... more »

Rural transit supports

I work with people with disabilities and in some rural areas it is really hard to find PPE and ways to social distance on vans and fixed route buses. Please help are seniors and people with disabilities to ride by encouraging Congress to fund 5310 senior and disabled transportation and work to strengthen non emergency medical transportation options in communities.

What "WE" Workers and Employers can do to reopen America's Commuting Systems safely

"WE" have all been training for this day! Trust in the guidelines that have been circulated throughout America and the world. "WE" will maintain the CRUCIAL and BASIC PRACTICES that WE have adapted to. WE all know them by now!

This new normal of sanitizing all surfaces, continuing to wear masks and gloves, being cognizant of what WE touch, how we sneeze, how we cough, how WE decontaminate ourselves when we return home/work,... more »

Reevaluate train safety, infrastructure, capacity and speed

Run more trains- Large cities with a subway system carry hundreds of people on one train. Crammed trains increase the risk of exposure to COVID. One way to limit the number of people cramming onto a train is to limit the number of carts on a train and increase the number of trains. If we don't have enough train engines to operate in this new COVID reality, we will need to build more trains. Building trains in the US is... more »

Electrical Car Plug-In Stations

This crisis presents an opportunity for ride-sharing startups. Ride-sharing startups use the same business model as scooter startups. Cars are parked throughout the city and accessed by an app. If electric car plug-in stations are mandated in parking lots throughout the city, thousands of electric cars can be conveniently fielded by ride-sharing startups, since the users would simply drop off the vehicle at the parking... more »

SF Bay Area Casual Carpool and Commute Lanes

I assume that, for many months, when people go back to work, we will not be able to do the casual carpooling - which is a system that's been in place in Berkeley/Oakland and surrounds for over 30 years in which drivers pick up commuters who stand in line at specific locations. The benefit is that the drivers can then take the carpool lanes, avoiding the long lines at the toll plaza. It benefits the drivers, the riders,... more »

Food Services

I noticed that many food services restaurants carry out and drive through are not wearing gloves or masks when preparing food and handling food. I refuse to eat out for this reason. I don't know which food places require this of their employees and who don't. This should be a mandate even if there was no virus. I am sure that after this many will feel the same as I do. The media may not know what they are exposing when... more »

Carpooling

there probably should be some guidelines and restrictions considered for people who carpool to work and/or other functions. Limitations should include limiting the number of people in the vehicle and possible masking requirements during travel.

Employers Should Shift Work Hours

In addition to all the normal safety precautions for commuters, masks and distancing - it would be good if employers could change their work shifts to offset the number of commuters that ride during the normal rush hours. Such as have them start at 9:30 instead of 8:00 or 9:00. This would allow for social distancing to be more easily accomplished, without commuters feeling like they have to pick between being late for... more »

Reducing virus spread in dense public transport

It would be helpful if transit riders wore PPE that would prevent them from spreading anything they may have. It is going to be critical to make basic masks available to the whole population. Buses can have more hand sanitizers or cleaning wipes available for the driver and riders. Drivers can have a clear plastic door separating them from the rest of the bus and passengers who are entering buses. Surfaces in buses can... more »
