For most people, mobility is one of the basic prerequisites for professional and social life. To achieve our life goals, we need to get around. The average Swiss person spends around 90 minutes travelling each day and this figure has been rising. Around half of this time is spent on leisure travel – mobility also means freedomi. But the measures the Swiss government has taken to contain the spread of COVID-19 have changed and restricted the way people move within the country in an almost unprecedented way. Trains and buses are almost empty despite reducing their timetables. Some pedestrian areas are like ghost towns, but many more people are jogging and cycling in local recreation areas. As soon as the lockdown measures are relaxed in the coming weeks, the extraordinary experience we have been through will have an impact on our mobility behaviour. In mid-April, Deloitte conducted a representative survey of 1,500 working-age people living in Switzerland to explore the impact of the coronavirus crisis on their current and future mobility behaviour.
