ABSTRACT

Transportation Impact and Implications of COVID-19   [open pdf - 437KB]

From the Document: "Starting with initial lockdowns in March 2020, the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic has had a profound impact on the U.S. transportation system, including changes in personal and commercial mobility. These changes in transportation patterns - both during the initial response to COVID-19 and during the subsequent year of efforts to minimize the spread of COVID-19 while restoring some aspects of daily life - will likely have significant implications for the nature of the country's future mobility needs and the best ways to meet those needs. While the future transportation patterns and needs of a post-COVID-19 environment will take several years to fully emerge, a review of the initial impact of COVID-19 on the nation's mobility patterns is helpful in gaining insights to the future of U.S. transportation and in determining appropriate future transportation policies."
