With rapid urbanization, population growth and uncontrolled vehicular growth arise the problems of congestion, pollution and infrastructure management. Increased vehicles lead to increase in the pollution levels rising the average temperature of the earth. There is a scientific consensus that the rising temperatures are causing global warming resulting in extreme weather events like floods. Efficient mitigation strategies can reduce the emissions from transportation sector, while efficient adaptation plans can reduce the damage of floods on transportation sector. The usage of Geographic Information System (GIS) technology in transportation helps to draft policies in less time with more effectiveness. This paper essentially talks about mitigation and adaptation strategies for the transportation sector of Bangalore Metropolitan Region. This study is done for the base year (2008) and the future target years 2030 and 2050. Initially, the paper discusses the business as usual scenario for vehicular emissions and develops mitigation strategies. The evaluation of mitigation policy bundles with extensive GIS analysis is also shown with the best policy bundle. This paper then moves onto business as usual scenario for the case of urban flooding and develops adaptation policy bundles. This paper shows the usage of GIS and evaluation of the adaptation policy bundles to create a flood-resilient transport infrastructure. This paper deals with urban flooding for adaptation analysis, which is a limitation to this paper.
