Chennai has seen an increase in the frequency of heavy rains and floods as a result of #climatechange. Flooding hampers daily activity, destroys transit infrastructure like rail stations and bus stops, and creates interruptions in service, leaving users stranded. We need to make our public transit provisions climate change ready and resilient by building early warning systems, response, and disaster management systems, as well as climate-responsive transit stations.
