The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has caused upheaval around the world, and has caused our daily routines to change quickly. Instead of commuting to work, employees are telecommuting. Schools are shuttered and students are taking classes online. Even shopping occurs online, often with a stranger choosing one’s groceries. While many of these systems were already established, we are depending on them more than ever before. How will these changes impact our future?
TRB is hosting a webinar on Monday, June 1, 2020, from 2:00 to 3:30 PM Eastern that will determine to what extent American travel will return to the pre-COVID-19 way of life.
Which behavioral changes will be long-lasting, and for whom? How, if at all, are the attitudes that underpinned our American lifestyle shifting in this crisis, and will these shifts be long-term? The webinar will examine potential answers to these questions by presenting the results of a recently completed University of Illinois at Chicago survey.Presenters will discuss an ongoing longitudinal and multi-wave national survey focused on social dynamics, attitudes, and the travel behaviors of American households before, during, and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
