Transportation Trends Related to COVID-19

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is having unprecedented effects on the region's transportation system by greatly reducing travel to, from, and within the region and impacting economic activity that supports the maintenance and expansion of the system. NCTCOG is actively monitoring these impacts and assessing potential implications for transportation planning in North Central Texas. Understanding these implications will position the agency to better serve the region's transportation needs in the days, weeks, and years to come. NCTCOG is monitoring these impacts through a series of four policy metrics:
  • Metric 1: Travel behavior response to COVID-19
  • Metric 2: Financial implications to traditional revenue sources
  • Metric 3: Benefits of traveler behavior responses
  • Metric 4: Prioritization of infrastructure improvements that offset unemployment increases
A dashboard displaying a series of performance measures related to these four metrics is in the final stages of development.
