Screen Shot 2015-10-02 at 10.50.50 AMChristof Spieler has been the central intellectual figure in the broad civic discussion about transit service in Houston for at least a decade. As a member of the Metro board, he has transformed the way the agency – and the public – think about transit service, especially bus service. He has changed the civic discussion from one about technologies to one about service in order to enable larger numbers of people to reduce their dependence on cars. His new System Reimagining plan has transformed the local bus network to one that serves many job centers.
