North Americans Turning Away From Public Transit As Direct Result Of COVID-19
The results of an online survey have shown how the COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in significant changes in North Americans' use of public transport.
The survey from Northstar Research Partners found that as a direct result of COVID-19, North Americans are switching their travel habits from public transit to either staying at home or relying more on their cars. Northstar’s public opinion poll found that 48% of Americans and 40% of Canadians feel that riding public transit poses a high health risk due to the virus.
More specifically, between 30-40% of Americans and ~30% of Canadians report decreased usage of public transportation (subways, buses and light rail) as a direct result of COVID-19.
