COVID-19 has changed many aspects of our daily lives. Things we used to take for granted look very different now, including our relationships with our vehicles and attitudes toward future transportation.

And how will economic and environmental impacts of the pandemic affect how we re-evaluate the timing and nature of our transportation choices?
