Traveling in a Covid-19 World

Mass transit options, such as buses and subways, naturally create environments that conflict with social distancing practices. Even ridesharing options – and other sharing economy services - present problems. What does travel look like in a Covid-19 world? And, how do we adapt to those changes? 

Our guest on The Uncommon Engineer is Kari Watkins, the Frederick Law Olmsted associate professor in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Her work focuses on the pairing of technology and transportation.
