Flooding and Public Transportation

October 20, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 pm

Hurricane Ida presented the latest example of climate change impacts to the subway system, with extensive damage and a systemwide shutdown. As storms intensify and sea levels rise, New York City’s public transportation systems will endure repetitive flooding and destructive events.

The NYU Rudin Center for Transportation presents a virtual panel discussion about mitigating climate change impacts, keeping transit riders safe and reassured, and activating alternative modes.
