Creating Resilient Transportation Systems,
Edition 1 Policy, Planning, and Implementation
By John Renne, Brian Wolshon, Anurag Pande, Pamela Murray-Tuite and Karl Kim

Publication Date: 10 Feb 2022

Creating Resilient Transportation Systems: Policy, Planning and Implementation demonstrates how the transportation sector is a leading producer of carbon emissions that result in climate change and extreme weather disruptions and disasters. In the book, Renne, Wolshon, Murray-Tuite, Pande and Kim demonstrate how to minimize the transportation impacts associated with these urban disasters, with an ultimate goal of returning them to at least status quo in the shortest feasible time.

Key Features

  • Assesses the short and long-term impacts of transportation systems on the natural environment at local, regional and global scales
  • Examines transportation systems in relation to risk, vulnerability, adaptation, mitigation, sustainability, climate change and livability
  • Shows how urban transportation investments in transit, walking and bicycling result in significantly lower per capita carbon emissions when compared to investing in sprawling, automobile dependent regions
