Impacts of Remote/Hybrid Work and Remote Services on Activity and Transportation Patterns

  • Principal Investigator Giovanni Circella, Ph.D.
  • University of California, Davis
This project will greatly improve the understanding of the impacts of remote/hybrid work and other remote services and inform State and planning agencies by shedding light on the complex ways remote activities affect short‐term daily routines (e.g., telecommuting vs. commuting trips, travel mode choice, and spatial/ temporal trip distributions) and long‐term choices (vehicle choice, residential location and real estate development), and will help understand the impacts on vehicle miles traveled (VMT) and transportation‐based greenhouse gas (GHG) emission impacts.

Investigating the Temporary and Longer-term Impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Mobility in California

Research Product Type
Research Report
This study investigates how the COVID-19 pandemic has transformed people’s activity-travel patterns, using datasets collected through three waves of surveys in spring 2020, fall 2020, and summer 2021. In general, the pandemic has generated a mix of short-lived temporary changes and potential longer-term impacts. The study provides various strategies to help increase transportation and social equity among various population groups as the communities recover from the pandemic.
