The effect of Covid-19 on transport has been seismic. But as recovery begins, the need for sustainable travel has only strengthened. Our report outlines how it can be achieved.
"A flexible approach to season tickets will be essential in 2021 and beyond. If it's not offered then I won't be returning to the office." That’s what commuter James told us about how his travel patterns are likely to change after the health crisis - and he's not alone.
