Since 1880, #climatechange has caused the average global temperature to climb by 1.1 degrees Celsius (source: NASA). This means the number of really hot days and heat waves has increased with a variety of severe implications. To adapt public transport to climate change, walks to transit stations and waits at transit stations must be minimised. This involves re-structuring last mile connectivity options and designing transit stations to endure high temperatures, using heat-resistant materials, and adequate ventilation.
