Roundtable on Shaping Post-Covid Mobility in Cities
ITF Secretary-General Young Tae Kim gives opening remarks this Roundtable that brings together ITF and outside experts to examine how cities can reinforce sustainable mobility trends which emerged during the Covid-19 pandemic and reverse unsustainable trends. The pandemic has led to substantial short- and medium-term changes in mobility behaviour. Some of these changes, like an increase in cycling and shared micro-mobility, are consistent with the objective of a modal shift in pursuit of sustainable mobility. Others, like reduced use of public transport and a shift back to using private cars, clearly run counter to these goals.
