The iconography that’s showing on streets to remind people how far we should be keeping from one another is an interesting evolution in street art. But it’s also an exercise in restraint, when you’re late for work will to get on to a train that just a little too full or wait for the next one?
Companies and cities have the capability to extend rush hour so that public transportation is less dense. Using apps to see how full subway carts could help people time their commute to a less busy time.
