The report outlines how passenger mobility trends in urban environments have been impacted from the first weeks of the global COVID-19 pandemic. It does not provide a complete picture of how passenger transport is being impacted. The data shows the impact but not the cause. Various reasons (e.g. number of registered infections and deaths, dates and extent of curfews, lockdowns, social distancing) influence mobility behavior and none of them can be directly extracted from this initial trends analysis. This preliminary analysis identifies that a few countries in Asia already see a tendency towards recovery of mobility use. However, only time will show how mobility and transport modes are going to evolve in the coming weeks and whether any of the so-far temporary trends will be carried forward.
