The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) has issued comments on the Non-Traditional and Emerging Transportation Technology (NETT) Council.
Here are some of the key recommendations:
- Public transit systems should use anonymous credential verification systems to prevent location tracking instead of traditional swipe card or tap card systems which are less privacy protective.
- The DOT should recommend privacy safeguards banning the sale or transfer of user data from public or private transit systems.
- We should identify privacy as an issue for possible hyperloop systems and ensuring it is addressed early in development.
