Transport and Covid-19: responses and resources

Roundtable on Shaping Post-Covid Mobility in Cities

Shaping Post-Covid Mobility in Cities
This Roundtable aimed to formulate recommendations on how to capitalise on positive behavioural changes and take stock of lessons learned during the Covid-19 pandemic. The pandemic has changed the way we live and move, and cities in particular face opportunities and challenges as they transition towards living with the virus and at the same time create more sustainable, resilient, and equitable transport systems.

The Roundtable on 8-10 June 2022 covered four topics: First, it sought to better understand how Covid has changed travel behaviour in cities and draw lessons for policy makers on how to manage mobility in future. Second, it looked at how teleworking impacts travel demand. Third, the Roundtable looked at which policies best support multimodal travel and which measures should be implemented during the recovery from the pandemic. Finally, the event considered the role of governments, employers and transport authorities in influencing new patterns of development, ways of working, and ways of commuting. Throughout, the focus was on which specific actions policy makers and urban mobility stakeholders  including city planners, local authorities, transport operators, employers and national governments, can take to shape post-Covid mobility in positive ways.
