Transport 2050: Remote Work and the Future of Transportation

Remote working, fad or future?

The pandemic has had a major impact on transportation, including prompting a massive shift towards working from home. At the outset of the public health crisis, one in ten Canadians traded their work commutes for a home office to ensure social distancing. With the remote-work trend presenting major challenges and opportunities for employers and employees alike, many are asking if mass tele-commuting will endure.

TransLink’s Transport 2050 conversation about remote work and transportation will discuss the trends, impacts, and how remote work can fit into the future of regional transportation.
