Covid-19 may have a big impact on the long-term travel patterns of office workers, according to a survey by workplace travel consultancy Go-Travel Solutions.
Go Travel surveyed 829 commuters from 49 employers in May. Most were members of its ‘SmartGo’ green travel schemes in Leicester, Milton Keynes and Stevenage. Many were non-car users.
Commuters were asked about their preferred commuting choice before the pandemic, and whether it would change when restrictions are lifted. First choices changed as follows:
Seven per cent thought working from home would become the norm.
Eighty-two per cent were currently working from home. Of these, 13 per cent thought it made them more effective, 32 per cent less effective, and 55 per cent reported no change.
Robin Pointon, managing director of Go Travel Solutions said: “We need to exercise caution in believing perceptions of the future will become reality. However, the research reflects that Covid-19 will make an unprecedented impact on workplace travel.”
