Impatient to travel again? Don’t pack your bags

Bloomberg Opinion Today

Spending months at our homes not knowing when we'll go anywhere farther than the grocery store has certainly proved one thing: Nothing gets the travel bug itching like a lockdown. And it's not just a longing for far-away vacations. Many, especially those in densely populated areas, depend on public transportation to get them to work or school, to take them to friends, and to run errands. Once-frequent fliers have been grounded from business travel and holidays — and it's hurting tourism-dependent destinations, too. How we get moving and where we go in the future of travel in the Covid era will look unlike anything in recent memory.
