Belgian rail developing system to predict crowd levels on trains

Belgium’s national rail company SNCB wants to develop a barometer that can anticipate how many people will be taking trains to the coast, it announced.

SNCB met with the National Crisis Centre, the Federal Ministry of Mobility and the Ministry of Interior Affairs on Thursday, along with the province of West Flanders and the coastal communes.

The system would use information from the rail company’s travel planner – which people can find in the SNCB’s app and on its website – as most people consult it before boarding a train.
