Road to Recovery Webinar: Behavioral Science 101: How Human Decision-Making Will Affect the Post-COVID World
Behavioral scientists have been studying how people make transportation decisions and how we can get them to make choices that are better for health, the environment, and traffic safety. But how does that change during a pandemic? In this webinar, Dr. Ashley Whillans of Harvard Business School will share insights about how a better understanding of human decision-making can help us navigate our way forward in a pandemic. She will share behavioral principles and how they can help us prevent a massive shift to drive-alone trips, while enhancing the safe use of transit and bicycling. She’ll also share insights about how behavioral science can help people thrive while working from home and improve compliance with public health recommendations for transit users.
