Abstract: Almost one year ago, in this editorial we discussed the outbreak of the SARS COV 2 virus that causes Covid19 and its relationship with transport. Restrictions on movement have been in place for large parts of the last year in many countries, resulting in significant changes in mobility patterns. Here we reflect on two temporary changes to travel behaviour due to restrictions during lockdown that have positive potential to move to more sustainable and healthy mobility, namely the reduction in travelling for work, and the increase in leisure walking and cycling and reflect on the potential for their permanency. However, we also identify that there is a threat to more healthy and sustainable travel behaviour as a result of the reduction in use of public transport.
