Misleading Occupancy Predictions

New Author

Thank you for developing the app. I find that the occupancy predictions are not very useful right now, because they are highly inconsistent within the app.

For example, this morning low to medium occupancy between Olten and Fribourg was indicated on the Connection and on the Journey information views:

On the other hand, the Train formation view showed very high occupancy in all coaches:

I assume that the first two views normalize occupancy across all connections and all 2nd class coaches:

whereas the train formation view normalizes occupancy across both 1st and 2nd class coaches in the train:

Given that users tend to interpret the occupancy symbol in absolute terms, it think that overloading the symbol with two different relative measures is a clear UI error.
