Resilience in multimodal transportation systems can be impaired, resulting in temporary inefficiency. Research has shown that disruptive events, either natural or man-made, cause shocks in the system’s functionality. This study aims to determine how resilience in multimodal systems can be measured to increase systems’ resiliency. Building upon existing work on transportation resilience, this study discusses: (a) how to measure resilience? (b) what is the functional relationship between transportation modes? And (c) how can the systems’ resiliency be improved? In this context, resilience is defined as the ability of a system to maintain its functionality during disruptions. A thorough literature review was conducted on infrastructure system resilience to develop a resilience assessment model. The physical transportation network was mapped into graphs, and network connectivity was measured. Analysis of the results indicated that transportation resilience can be measured by assessing degradation of network metrics under disruptions.
