Improving the Resilience of Transit Systems Threatened by Natural Disasters, Volume 2: Research Overview

TCRP A-41, Improving the Resilience of Transit Systems Threatened by Natural Disasters, was initiated in February 2015. The project included an extensive literature review, 17 transit agency case studies, a workshop to test the proposed framework for the Guide, and the development of the Guide itself, with its accompanying webpage and database of tools and resources. The project also included extensive interaction with American Public Transportation Association (APTA) to develop a way to incorporate resilience into APTA standards and guidance, as a long-term tactic to institutionalize resilience practices within transit agencies. This report summarizes the major elements of the research effort, with references to full documentation where appropriate. The final section of the report (prior to the bibliography) identifies additional research needs that have been identified during the course of the study.
