UO researchers examine how COVID-19 is affecting cities

COVID-19 is already shaping the city of tomorrow, with the potential to change everything from how people move through metro areas to how they value real estate.

The virus era could severely affect shared transit, shared rides, and bikesharing, with additional economic consequences if people continue to work from home and fuel e-commerce.
