Social Distancing in Taxi ranks

Original submission


Lines at taxi ranks are usually long at peak times (mornings and afternoons). Commuters stand so close to each to get inside a taxi quicker when one becomes available or when a Taxi Que Marshall instructs commuters to go to a certain taxi.

Since the pandemic has reached South Africa, commuters still do not have an understanding of keeping 1 - 1,5m distance as advised by the World Health Organisation.


Perspex glass separation between each commuter to better enforce this rule without wasting the limited space offered at taxi ranks.


These perspex separators would be made with affordable recycled material.
