AET Covid-19 Conversations

In line with its role to advance transport planning through networking and the exchange of ideas, information and opportunities, AET has launched an initiative to support its members and the wider transport industry through the current Covid-19 Pandemic. 

We will be discussing the impacts of Covid-19 with members from across Europe giving you a unique and wide-ranging pan European view of ongoing developments during the current crisis. When relevant, information on selected countries across the world will also be posted on this page.

How is Covid-19 affecting daily life, travel and mobility patterns and how will these be impacted in the future in a post Covid-19 world?

AET members will have additional access to interviews with follow members throughout Europe discussing how the Covid-19 pandemic is affecting the transport. 

AET welcomes evidence and experiences in respect of Covid-19, the mobility and transport sector impacts, current responses and plans and proposals for future recovery. These submissions will be reviewed, classified and posted on this page which will be regularly updated.

If you would like to contribute materials to be shared here, please email us at covid19@aetransport.org.
