It’s only Germany and France who are back on board. In fact, on average, there are now more people using public transportation in Germany and France than there were in January and February.
In some countries consumers will choose the option which suits their journey, but in other countries, such as Italy, the UK, and the US, consumers will opt for personal transport.
A look at the social data
Using our Consumer Research platform, we looked at English-language mentions of people cycling, driving, or taking the bus, train, subway or tube, from January 2019 to August 9, 2020.
