Transport planning has faced huge challenges since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. With lockdowns, social distancing measures, and strict hygiene regulations – all commuters and road users had to adjust.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, mass transit ridership and fare revenues have plummeted by more than 90 percent at many agencies across the nation. While relief funds will address some of the short-term needs of these agencies, the long-term health and sustainability of the public transit system remains fragile.
