Assess the mobility and health impact of Covid-19 on diverse communities

The Covid-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the lives of communities in many dimensions. In this research, the research team relies on traffic data (both vehicular and non-motorized traffic) collected during and after the pandemic to assess how transportation, a critical service to the community for both daily lives and the response to the pandemic, is affected, and its role in response and recovery in a selected number of communities in California and elsewhere (most likely New York City, depending on data availability), paying particular attention to equity. Through this study, the team hopes to find ways to improve transportation services that promote robust response to future pandemics and other disasters in equitable ways.
