The objective of the survey was to understand the concerns and the priorities of users’ in the post COVID era of social distancing, safety, and sanitization. The survey shows interesting insights on how safety from coronavirus remains the topmost priority for everyone who is commuting.

- Public transport saw a staggering drop of 24.6%
- Cab-hailing/ auto rickshaws saw a drop of 8.6%
