Austin, TX, March 11, 2019



Co-hosted by Wonk Shop Media and The Buzz Mill

Join us for an evening with Christof Spieler, author of “Trains, Buses, People: An Opinionated Atlas of US Transit" with live music, food, drinks, and discussion!

In profiling 47 metropolitan rail transit and bus rapid transit systems, Christof Spieler doesn’t equivocate as he compares each through a careful, thorough analysis. The result is an honest look at what makes for good and bad transit and a presentation of how geography, history and politics have impacted transit planning across the United States. Come learn about the findings and what the author considers the best and worst systems in the country.

Books will be available for purchase and signing, and coffee, drinks and food are available at The Buzz Mill!
