Researchers at the University of Toronto’s School of Cities analyze anonymized mobile-device connectivity data to estimate foot traffic in select downtown areas nationally, and Axios takes the data to explain that “Downtown activity has returned to, or even exceeded, pre-pandemic rates in a handful of U.S. cities – but most downtowns are still struggling to attract the foot traffic they once did,” and Indianapolis is at the bottom end, down by 41% comparing to December 2019 – February 2020 to the same period in 2022- 2023 . . . even as activity in our peer city of Columbus, Ohio, grows by 109% over the same timeframe.
