COVID's Impacts on Commuting: An Interactive Charrette
The global pandemic has touched nearly every aspect of daily life. Commuting patterns have been upended as millions of people began working from home. As work sites began to re-open, health and safety concerns have pushed commuters to single occupancy vehicles. Without concerted efforts by communities, employers, and other stakeholders to develop and deploy TDM strategies, there is a real concern that a permanent shift to driving alone could impact mode splits for years to come.
This three-part, interactive charrette, in partnership with the Center for TDM, will bring together TDM professionals from across the nation to identify and develop solutions and strategies for ensuring an efficient and sustainable return to the work site through the implementation of TDM. The Center for TDM will compile all information gathered during the charrette activities into a final report post event.
Part 1: Panel Session: A spotlight on Atlanta
To set the stage, the charrette will focus on COVID’s impacts on the Atlanta region. Panelists representing a mix of public agencies and private sector leaders will discuss what is happening in Atlanta. How has the region been adjusting? How is the information influencing decision making about their return to work site? What are the behavioral, economic, and social challenges they anticipate having to overcome?
