The U.S. transportation network is a critical asset. Traffic operations centers, air traffic control towers and mass transit control centers are essential to the safe and effective movement of people and goods. But these systems are also highly capital and infrastructure intensive, requiring constant monitoring and upkeep.

What happens when an event like COVID-19 disrupts the transportation sector? How do leaders respond effectively to a disaster scenario, ensuring they can operate their networks safely and efficiently and they can support essential services and workers?
