Cities, which are home to over half of the population in the world, are at the frontline of the pandemic crisis and global response efforts. While the pandemic severely influences urban areas, the silver lining is that interventions in the urban transport and real estate market could have a pivotal moment in which crisis can be turned into an opportunity. By prioritising the right investments, we can have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to leverage the pandemic and build back in resilient, inclusive and sustainable cities. The key to seizing this opportunity in formulating and implementing the recovery plans requires our thorough understanding of transport and real estate in the post-pandemic world. This Special Issue calls for papers that can address any of the following questions:
- How do the post-pandemic housing markets evolve?
- How does the pandemic affect urban informal housing for the poor and the vulnerable?
- How does the new trend of work-from-home and e-commerce shape the future urban transport and real estate markets?
- How does the trend of PropTech, such as Uber, Airbnb, iBuyer, etc., reframe the future urban transport and real estate markets?
