How do we better understand the transport options available to support people getting back to work and school as we transition to COVID-Normal, as well as learn more about impacts and opportunities for the broader transport system and associated services (logistics, freight, parking, infrastructure etc)?
COVID-19 and the various measures put in place to combat its spread have had an impact on the mobility of people across the spectrum of transportation modes, including short-term commuter mode-shift from public transport towards cars. These impacts have had a flow on effect for economic activities and supply chains across the country. If current changes to travel patterns become more entrenched there may be longer-term implications for congestion, productivity, emissions, and the efficient use of transport assets.
Given the various unknowns about the short-term and long-term effects, what are the opportunities to support the sustainability of all transport sectors.
