New Study Analyzes the Impact of COVID-19 on Traffic Collisions and Road Safety

See The Full Report

Using location-based insights from billions of anonymous data points we can help to analyze and monitor the impact of COVID-19 on our cities, roadways, and businesses.

COVID-19 restrictions have impacted transportation regionally and nationally. Throughout the pandemic, INRIX has analyzed the movement of people and goods around the world to provide insight into the dramatic changes on our roadways.

Several overlying trends have emerged: First, consumer trips were down massively while freight trips have decreased to a much lower degree. Second, trip reductions in metros closely track official guidance regarding work from home, social distancing, and shelter in place restrictions. As this crisis progresses, it is likely more cities will come to resemble those current most impacted.

INRIX Trip Analytics provides a powerful means to measure and describe just how these changes are manifesting across the country and world which we're providing access to in the free dashboard below.

To better capture the re-emergence of cities and businesses, INRIX has also developed metrics and visuals to measure activity, regardless of mode using INRIX Visit Analytics metadata. We call this, “Activity Re-Emergence Trends”.

As people, cities and businesses start to recover from COVID-19, location-based insights from hundreds of millions of connected devices can help us see what areas and industries are seeing the most activity.

INRIX has created information and interactive “Activity Maps” on this new activity re-emergence trends page to understand which cities, areas, and businesses are seeing the most change in activity.
