UC ITS Webinar: COVID-19 Effects on the Mobility of Vulnerable Populations
COVID-19 has severely impacted the ability of vulnerable populations to access critical services and resources. Vulnerable populations face a number of risks and challenges when traveling during COVID-19 including increased exposure to COVID-19, less frequent public transit service, and unreliable paratransit and non-emergency medical transportation services. This webinar will discuss critical transportation challenges facing vulnerable populations through two research projects from the UC Institute of Transportation Studies, including one project examining healthcare access challenges and another project assessing how the mobility of older adults has changed during COVID. These projects offer key insights on compounding inequalities, opportunities in telehealth, and the feasibility of alternative transportation services. Researchers will also offer key policy insights that can drive more equitable transportation services and access for vulnerable populations. --- POLICY BRIEF & FULL REPORT: Transportation Access to Health Care During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Trends and Implications for Significant Patient Populations and Health Care Needs - https://www.ucits.org/research-project/2021-11/
