Floods, heat waves, hurricanes, wildfires, and sea level rise threaten the state of good repair of transit assets and infrastructure. Weather records already show a worsening of these phenomena and robust climate science projects these trends to accelerate. Already struggling with bringing transit assets up to a state of good repair in the face of tight budgets, how do transit agencies respond to this threat? Come learn about state-of-the art risk management tools and what transit agencies in the lead are doing to respond. This is the second in a series of FTA workshops on climate change adaptation.
