Research Report 672 Leveraging transport disruption to influence change

Published: | Category: Inclusive access , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

This research was commissioned to identify learnings from prior, major transport disruptions to provide insights on the best approaches for bringing about positive and sustained changes in people’s transport behaviours arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The report does not make separate recommendations (this was not part of the research brief) but does stress the importance of ‘not going back’ to old ways and the report also provides a list of potential approaches to behaviour change following major transport disruptions. Insights and evidence from this research may be used to assist decision makers in Central Government, MoT and Local Government as they plan COVID-19 recovery actions and prepare for future pandemic threats.

Keywords: behaviour change, policy response, transport disruption, transport system
