CodeRedTO welcomes back Christof Spieler, author of Trains, Buses, People, Second Edition: An Opinionated Atlas of US and Canadian Transit, to speak with the CodeRedTO community on September 27 about lessons Toronto and the GTHA could learn from other cities’ experiences.
Christof Spieler is an engineer and planner, a senior lecturer at Rice University in the architecture and engineering schools, and spent eight years on the board of Houston’s Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County (METRO). He’s also a member of the American Public Transit Association’s Sustainability and Urban Design Working Group, which drafts national standards on transit and urban design, a contributor to NACTO’s Transit Street Design Guide, a member of the Central Houston Transportation Committee, and a board member at TransitCenter in New York.
Christof Spieler presented at a CodeRedTO event in 2019 and we are thrilled to welcome him back (virtually!) to launch Trains, Buses, People, Second Edition: An Opinionated Atlas of US and Canadian Transit, which now covers every rail transit and bus rapid transit system in the United States and Canada!
