As cities are beginning to reopen, traffic is quickly increasing. People are not riding transit at pre-pandemic rates, leaving cities to reassess how their transportation systems can function efficiently. Roadways were already at or above capacity before the pandemic hit, and now congestion is on its way to being even worse, resulting in gridlock that will hamper economic recovery efforts. This webinar covers recent transportation trends in cities, the risks of increasing traffic congestion, and the tools and techniques cities are using, from the expansion of micromobility and congestion pricing to a variety of transit priority measures, to avoid increased congestion and gridlock.
