Rudin Center Transportation Study: Sandy’s Damage Could Have Been Much Worse

January 3, 2013

A new report titled “Transportation During and After Hurricane Sandy”—by Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service researchers Sarah Kaufman, Carson Qing, Nolan Levenson, and Melinda Hanson—praises the MTA and New Yorkers for demonstrating “ingenuity and persistence in the face of disaster.” The city’s multiple transportation options, says the study, allowed most to remain mobile, and admirably flexible, during the extended disruption of subway service. The authors write: “As a result of the timely and thorough preparations by New York City and the MTA, along with the actions of city residents and emergency workers to evacuate and adapt, the storm wrought far fewer casualties than might have occurred otherwise.”

The study was published by Wagner’s Rudin Center for Transportation Policy and Management, which is directed by Mitchell L. Moss. Read the report at nyurudincenter.com/sandy.
