Next Practices for Addressing Climate Resiliency (February 7 Webinar)

Published on: February 4, 2023

FTA and the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) will co-host a webinar on Next Practices for Addressing Climate Resiliency in Public Transportation at 2 p.m. ET Tuesday, February 7. Attend to learn more about the planning efforts and practices agencies nationwide are implementing to address system vulnerabilities associated with the increased frequency of extreme heat, rising sea levels, storm surge, high winds, flooding, earthquakes, tornados, and hurricanes. Registration is required.

The session is part of FTA’s Sustainable Transit for a Healthy Planet Challenge, which supports President Biden’s goal of achieving a 50-percent reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from 2005 levels by 2030. The challenge encourages transit agencies to adopt strategies to reduce GHG emissions, such as creating climate action or sustainability plans, converting fleets to electric buses, or making facilities more energy efficient.

Increased frequency and intensity of storms and natural disasters impact transit systems and riders. Transit facilities, equipment, and networks must be planned, designed, and built to be resilient and able to withstand extreme weather events.

FTA will continue to share resources and provide opportunities to engage with transit agencies on how the industry can achieve the Administration’s GHG emission reduction goals, as well as their own agency targets.
