Asia Society Texas Center - Edward Rudge Allen III Education Center, 1370 Southmore, Houston, Texas 77004
Don't miss this crucial discussion! With Houston's transit future threatened, it's time to explore the possibilities for realizing the plan that voters approved in 2003. That plan is in peril now, and decisions made in the next several weeks will decide whether the plan will go forward - or come to a screeching halt.
The Symposium will offer government officials, citizen leaders and local transit planners and engineers insights and details about the coming Metro Long Range Plan. Does light rail have a future in Houston? Are big changes coming to the bus network?
Including presentations by Jarrett Walker, Author and International Transit Consultant; George Greanias, CEO and President, Metro; Christof Spieler, Metro Board Member, Director of Innovation & Technology, Morris Architect; Janis Scott, Transit Rider Extraordinaire; David Crossley, President, Houston Tomorrow
