The LEDS GP Transport Working Group is publishing a series of papers co-authored by young people from around the world on sustainable recovery for the transport sector: Leveraging insights from COVID-19 response measures to drive more sustainable, inclusive and resilient transport systems. Érika Martins Silva Ramos co-authored this paper about the behavioral aspects of travel mode choices.
The paper “Behavioral change and the pandemic” provides an understanding of how COVID-19 has impacted sustainable transport modes and examples of how governments are using this moment to leverage the increase in different forms of sustainable mobility (e.g., increased walking and cycling) and to support recovery in the sub-sectors that were most affected (e.g., public transport).
The paper was co-authored by Érika Martins Silva Ramos, and Chris Dekki, Angela Enriquez and Nikola Medimorec from the LEDS Transport Working Group.
