Research from The University of Western Australia has found the COVID-19 environment, which has created a less mobile and more digitally focused workforce, has changed people’s travel behaviour and may impact their use of transport into the future.
The COVID-19 lockdown instigated fundamental changes to human activity and mobility patterns, brought about by adjustments to national and state regulations.
In Australia, the lockdown has led to a significant drop in the use of public transport and cars, however walking and cycling, particularly in Western Australia, have risen in popularity as a mode of transport.
