Transit Agency Adaptation to Extreme Weather Events: Cataloguing and Modeling, Costs, Decisions and Behaviors

The project aims to develop greater detail about the decision process, costs, perceived risks and tradeoffs that transit planners and managers consider as part of addressing potentially damaging extreme weather events. The project also aims to work toward the development of decision tools and approaches that can more effectively respond to future weather related challenges that are often associated with climate change. Plana are to conduct a two-part, four-component project that collects different types of data and conducts different types of analysis related to transit adaptation to extreme weather events. Taken together the four components will provide substantial insights into the decision process - specification of costs, occurrence and severity of weather events, recognition of risks and risk perceptions, and the role that inter-organizational network structures play in information dissemination, coordination and support.
