he way that we move within cities and globally has changed drastically due to COVID-19 and the associated lockdown restrictions
During the first period of lockdowns, countries such as Germany and France experienced drops in urban movement frequency of -40% and -50% respectively compared to a Jan 2021 baseline. But now as countries slowly begin to experience increases in urban movement frequency, we are beginning to ask ourselves: What changes in mobility were merely temporary adaptions, and what impacts are here to stay? To address the ramifications of this question, this Berylls insight analyses the post COVID mobility trends & impacts from the perspective of mobility consumers, city administrators, and mobility service providers.
