Public Transit: Federal and Transit Agencies Taking Steps to Build Transit Systemsäó» Resilience but Face Challenges
David J. Wise (au)
Public transit systems, which receive funding from the federal government, are vulnerable to catastrophic events, as demonstrated by the impact Hurricane Sandy and other events have had on transit systems. These events highlight our reliance on transit systems and the cost of recovering from these events. For ex, of the $50.5 billion Congress appropriated to help communities devastated by Sandy, $10.9 billion was provided for disaster relief to public transit agencies. Building resilience -- the ability to prepare for, respond to, recover from, and mitigate the risk of catastrophic events -- is one strategy to help limit the nation's fiscal exposure to catastrophic events. This report examines (1) how the Departments of Homeland Security (DHS) and Transportation (DOT) help transit agencies make their systems resilient; (2) actions selected transit agencies take to make their systems resilient; and (3) challenges transit agencies face with making their systems resilient. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
