Abstract
City transportation systems are always suffering various disruptions from both natural and man-made incidents. These disruptions can incur failure of system and thus bring a more extensive loss to the whole society. The concept of resilience was introduced into transportation system since it concerned about the performance of system under disruptions. Resilience has been initially described as the ability of system to become healthy and strong again after a disruptive event. On transportation resilience, a number of scholars have carried out exploratory researches from different perspectives. However, the definitions and the connotations within it they recommended were quite multifarious. This paper took a summative review of these definitions and connotations and tried to develop an integrated description about what a resilient transportation system is, and what aspects of characters it should have. This is a fundamental work for applying resilience to practice.
