Transport and Covid-19: responses and resources

Covid-19 and its Impact on Urban Mobility, Europe – FIA Smart Cities Forum

Young Tae Kim, ITF Secretary-General speaks on the panel  “Using Real-Time Data to Measure Shifts in Road Users’ Behaviour”. 

The impact of COVID-19 has been felt across the entire urban mobility space with many services temporarily paused or reduced, and alternative modes of transportation increased. This abrupt intervention represents an opportunity for urban mobility actors to rethink public policies and, ultimately, the way we move around cities.

From public transport to shared services, active travel and the rise of micro-mobility, the impact of COVID-19 on the transport sector in cities has been rapid and far reaching. The post-pandemic world though has the potential to bring smarter urban mobility alternatives to the forefront. Changes such as improved and open data sharing, as well as closer collaboration amongst all stakeholders can contribute to making urban mobility safer, more sustainable and more accessible for all road users.

Thought leaders from international organisations, the public and private sectors, and the FIA Community, share their insights on the use of real-time data to measure shifts in road users’ behaviour caused by the global pandemic, and how this data can better guide the decision-making processes.
