At the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) in Tshwane on Monday, the Gauteng MEC for Transport and Logistics, Kedibone Diale-Tlabela, presented the results of the Gauteng COVID-19 Household Survey.

The paper details the pandemic’s short to long-term effects on provincial household travel habits.

Busisiwe Marole, a CSIR researcher, discussed some Gauteng household travel survey results with Radio Islam International.

According to the poll, which was done using a questionnaire, there has been a general drop in work-related travel, especially when using a personal vehicle.

Marole claims that this results from a work-from-home policy established during the outbreak.

Naturally, there was a minor rise in travel for medical reasons.

Findings indicate a 6% decrease in trip volumes during the typical morning peak hours of 6 to 9 a.m.

She went on to say that the findings also showed that there had been no changes to shopping excursions, educational trips, or non-motorised transportation.
