Cities play a major role in tackling the COVID-19 pandemic as many measures are adopted at the scale of cities and involve adjustments to the way urban areas operate.

The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically changed mobility behaviour. Many trips have been reduced due to the restrictions in everyday life, public transport has been shunned as a common means of transport, and in its place, there has been a shift to the private car as well as to walking and cycling. This article first analyses the developments and impacts of the pandemic on mobility. It then shows which new pathways transport policy and administration are taking to cope with the crisis.
It is obvious that mobility has to change, as it has a major impact on climate change and greenhouse emissions, land consumption as well as tangible disadvantages such as accidents, illnesses caused by air pollution and noise pollution and lack of exercise. In the interview, you learn about Tactical Urbanism, efficiency and co-working spaces, among other things, and what this has to do with modern mobility. Synergy effects and the interconnection of means of transport also play a major role.
