Has your mobility changed in the pandemic period (COVID-19) and how?

We thank you for your participation in this mobility survey.

The aim of this questionnaire is to gain an understanding of how we travel today and how we will travel in a fast-evolving world, where events as pandemics can disrupt our habits.


Your generous support will allow us to advance in the research and keep into account your needs and attitudes to make future mobility more efficient and adequate to users’ needs.    

The questionnaire will take about 15 minutes to complete and you may save your answers while you fill it and come back later to finish it.    

All your answers will be treated anonymously and statistically elaborated in an aggregated way.    

There are not good or bad answers, reply freely. For us, it is important to know your opinion on the different issues and problems of mobility.    

Thank you for your participation in our survey!
