Adapting to Climate Change Impacts
Readiness for emergency situations is important, but now, more than ever, effective resilience to climate change and extreme weather events is essential; to protect current and future infrastructure investments, and maintain safe operational capabilities. While each geographic area is different in terms of expected climate change variables, over time weather events will become much more impactful in terms of their frequency, duration and intensity. As a result, these extreme weather events and natural disasters will threaten the operations and the capital assets of transit systems nationwide.
We conduct vulnerability and resiliency assessments to determine exactly where and what operations/ elements of your system are most vulnerable. The output of this exercise will provide data allowing you to perform an initial risk assessment for each operation or component of your transit system.
