COVID-19 has turned the transport world upside down, with most national governments imposing lockdowns and travel bans causing journey numbers to plummet across all modes, jeopardising the future of many transport businesses.
One major impact of COVID-19 will be on socio-cultural behaviour, with differing views on the degree to which various features of the current lockdown will continue once the crisis has abated.
Some of the impacted behaviours which affect the transport sector include:
- Home working
- Home schooling
- Retail choices
- Travel choices (both local and international)
We have produced a paper exploring initial industry thinking on what these could mean for the future of transport, and which approaches we at Mott MacDonald think transport professionals could use to navigate the uncertainty.
