70 CAPTool User Guide Example Agency To ease comprehension of the CAPTA methodology, the fictional Apex Transportation Authority is used to illustrate application of CAPTool. The Apex Transportation Authority pos- sesses a normal complement of urban transportation assets, including road bridges and tun- nels, transit stations, transit bridges and tunnels, buses, and a single passenger ferry that operates seasonally. The agency is located in an urban area along an ocean front, serving a metropolitan area of 4 million persons, with daily ridership of 350,000 and daily commuter auto traffic of 400,000. The agency is relatively well funded, has an infrastructure with some elements over 90 years old, and has a great body of institutional knowledge and data from past weather events and disruptions. Within this example, the urban agency, with the wide ranges of transportation modes under its jurisdiction, will avail itself of the full range of the CAPTool.
