COVID-19 has held the world in its grip for more than a year, causing a complete halt in daily routines. But as lockdowns to stop the spread of the virus were put in place, public transport continued to prove essential to providing mobility to frontline workers and keep our cities moving.
With vaccination programmes being rolled out, economic activity recovers and the demand for mobility grows. This provides a unique opportunity to start over and shape the future of our cities.
Public transport is the backbone of sustainable urban mobility, providing an essential service to keep the heart of cities beating . By investing in public transport and encouraging active mobility, we can build back to better mobility, better cities and better lives.
Extensive evidence has repeatedly shown that with the correct measures in place, public transport is COVID-safe. And by sharing knowledge, studying data and organising events, our global membership aims at helping the sector in rebuilding after the pandemic.
On this dedicated page, we have gathered key insights and resources for decision makers and the sector.
