TUBR, the Mobile App Making More Space for You on the London Underground
TUBR is the mobile app that helps you navigate the busy times on the London Underground. Pre-Covid, our commutes to and from work were crowded and uncomfortable. TUBR’s Founder & CEO, Dash Tabor, was tired of a crowded commute and hated finding her personal space invaded day after day. So she experimented with slightly different travel times and realized a few minutes here or there could mean a completely different experience. So she started to wonder, why can’t data solve this problem for me and why isn’t there an app for that? Covid-19 has drastically changed the commuter space. As we emerge from lockdown, Londoners want to regain their sense of freedom and feel comfortable on public transport around the city, but the need for more space on public transport still weighs heavily on people’s minds. TUBR hopes to alleviate the stresses of Tube travel through a simple design that shows users how busy a station or train is and suggests the best time to step out of the house.
