This page serves as a centralized hub for insights into how the COVID-19 virus has impacted cities and transportation sectors, the resulting travel restrictions, and how agencies and operators have responded.
On March 11th, 2020, the World Health Organization declared coronavirus COVID-19 a worldwide pandemic. While responses to the spread of COVID-19 throughout the spring of 2020 varied by outbreak severity, location and culture, many people around the globe found themselves suddenly facing unfamiliar restrictions on their movements and their access to familiar services.
This homepage aims to serve as a centralized hub for insights into how cities and transportation sectors have been impacted by the virus and the resulting travel restrictions, as well as how public agencies and shared mobility operators have responded. The page will be regularly updated as new resources become available, and as trends and lessons emerge in the aftermath of the crisis.
These status updates are part of SUMC’s ongoing effort to explore how cities and transportation sectors are impacted by the novel COVID-19 coronavirus. Subsequent status updates on the coronavirus’s impact on transit and shared mobility will be published as new information is shared.
