COVID-19 is forcing change to how people live and work. In response to the immediate crisis, transit agencies have altered service patterns as cities and state governments have instituted physical distancing measures. As residents shift their day-to-day behaviors, with little clarity on how soon society will go “back to normal,” agencies face an uncertain future.
Some early signs of how transportation systems can re-open are beginning to emerge abroad. Join us as we explore how the New Zealand Transport Agency is safely welcoming back daily travel while planning for a “new normal.” Claire Pascoe of the New Zealand Transport Authority will discuss her agency’s efforts to launch tactical urbanism pilots in response to COVID-19. Through their innovative Streets program, NZTA is adapting streets to better support the needs of public transit, walking, and biking.
