Our product allows for mobility analysis in the DMV area using demographic information as well as the change in ridership numbers for the DMV metro due to the Covid-19 lockdown in March 2020. Users can view demographic information such as household income and highest education attained for each census tract in the DMV area on an interactive map. The map also can display metro ridership information before and after the lockdown as well as the percent change in ridership numbers for each individual metro station. The website allows users to input their own data into a machine learning model which would predict post-lockdown DMV metro ridership based on the given demographic data and pre-lockdown-pandemic ridership numbers. This allows for insight on metro ridership if an event similar to the Covid-19 pandemic were to happen in the future.
