Our first live COVID-19 briefing, Mohamed Mezghani, Secretary General at UITP, delivered the latest information on a number of pressing areas for public transport and mobility professionals, from ridership impact to the increase in air quality in some of the world’s most polluted cities.


  • Impact on ridership and revenue during and after COVID-19
  • How does public transport get back to ‘normal’ after COVID-19?
  • A greener world as a welcome byproduct of COVID-19
  • We also looked at the indirect effect that the virus has had on climate change and air quality, and whether any progress made can be maintained once social distancing measures around the world are eased.

In each of the above cases, Mohamed will be providing best practice tips and advice for operators and authorities, as well as citing some of the best global examples of handling operations during the pandemic.
