Hazard and Security Planning for Transit Systems: One Size Does Not Fit All

Researchers are discovering that security and hazard planning can vary more between two rural areas than between two larger urban areas. To approach this variability in sources and types of threats, the Transit Cooperative Research Program has developed a malleable template for a hazard and security plan (HSP) under Project J-10D, Security Planning Tools for Rural, Small Urban, and Community-Based Public Transportation Operations. This HSP template helps transit managers in these settings select policies and procedures that fit the needs of their service area. This article briefly describes an 8-hour workshop for introducing this template.
