Adaptation and Resilience Planning
For Providers of Public Transportation
The planet’s climate is changing, and this is producing impacts on local transportation systems such as sea level rise, changes in temperature and precipitation, and increased flood risk. In order to maintain the resilience of the transportation system in light of these challenges, local agencies will have to analyze the potential impact of these challenges in their long range capital planning.
