COVID-19: UK industry focus - Where next for transport?

The COVID-19 crisis has fundamentally changed the way people live, work and travel. The transport sector enables and relies on this economic activity. While the long-term impact of the pandemic is still uncertain, demand for transport services and associated infrastructure will be influenced by multiple, sometimes conflicting factors. 

As a critical public service, the sector needs to cater for changing public needs and consumer behaviours, and adapt to socio-economic trends, policy changes and emerging private sector innovation.

Decisions that authorities and operators take now as necessary responses to the current crisis, also represent an opportunity to make our transport ecosystems more sustainable, and provide lasting, positive effects on the economy, the environment and society. 

“Collaboration between city authorities and private companies can provide a new, joined-up transport service that empowers people to make choices as their needs evolve.”
