  • Includes a Live Web Event on 12/14/2022 at 3:00 PM (EST)

    This APTA/FTA webinar will help raise awareness of the disproportionate impacts of climate change on transit users, and highlight actions by transit agencies around the country to mitigate impacts. This webinar is free to all attendees.

    The effects of climate change have a disproportionate impact on transit users.   It is important to understand how extreme heat, flooding, and impure water, all byproducts of climate, expose transit riders to an increasing degree.   The webinar will raise awareness to those risks, and highlight actions by transit agencies around the country to mitigate impacts in an equitable manner.  Actions to boost climate resiliency include cool pavements,  tree canopies, enhanced shelters and waiting areas, and schedules, connections, wait times, and real-time information that can help enhance the comfort of the complete transit trip.

    Join this discussion with top transit leaders on rethinking how transit investment is measured and communicated and how to sustain the case for long-term investments in transit.

    As transit agencies across the country focus on rebuilding ridership and putting IIJA dollars to work, they are also measuring and communicating the value of transit service and investments in new and compelling ways. How are agencies using new metrics and data to optimize transit service and maximize equity, sustainability and accessibility? How are they communicating the value of existing service and future investments, both for those that use transit and those who do not? Join this discussion with top transit leaders on rethinking how transit investment is measured and communicated and how to sustain the case for long-term investments in transit.
