The confluence of the health emergency from the COVID-19 pandemic and the new agreements coming out from Glasgow at COP26 place us at a decisive moment on how we want our cities to look like in the future. At no other time in history has it been clearer that transport infrastructures play an essential role in enabling us to care for our families, friends, and ourselves. As we start looking for strategies to reconnect our communities in the wake of COVID-19, and consider how to address the inevitable climate crisis, it is time we put care at the centre of transport's role in our societies.
