  • As it becomes apparent that increasing sustainability is a requirement to be a leading city in modern, globalized society, public and private actors are improving mass transit networks in cities around the world. At the same time, the threat of international terrorism is a security concern which must be addressed by modern cities, particularly those in Western countries like the United States and members of the European Union. This thesis looks at how mass transit, where sustainability and security converge, is dealing with these two realities of the twenty-first century, both of which have become significant issues only in recent decades. Brief histories of transit and terrorism are given prior to a more thorough analysis of security measures that have been taken by cities already, as well as some measures that could be taken in the future.
