Sudden changes in urban mobility were caused due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The impacts are yet to be furtherly measured and analyzed. Our article uses GPS records provided by three different micromobility operators in Madrid to study how the pandemic affected their service usage and its relationships with land use. Thus, spatio-temporal travel patt...
