TRAN's research on COVID-19 and urban mobility: impacts and perspective
The European Parliament's Committee on Transport and Tourism (TRAN) published a Rapid-response briefing on the impacts of COVID-19 on the mobility ecosystem.
The briefing provides an overview on the state of play and trends of urban transport since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. It outlines four scenarios, the prevalence of one or the other depending on the priorities established by policy makers and service providers. The briefing delivers general recommendations for a post-COVID-19 smart and sustainable urban transport and a set of desirable actions on how to integrate EU response into existing policy priorities.
The TRAN Committee COVID-19 and mobility rapid response briefing contains information regarding:
- Effects of the lockdown on urban mobility (mitigation measures and overview of trends)
- Short term trends and measures after lockdown (reopening measures, behavioral and attitudinal trends, state aids and financial support to the transport sector)
- The "new normal": challenges and opportunities for post-COVID-19 scenarios (for active travel, public transport, shared mobility services, freight and logistics)
- Recommendations (for post-COVID-19 smart and sustainable transport system and EU policy-makers)
