Don't miss this crucial dialogue about Houston's Transit Future!

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.

Symposium plus distinguished speaker Jarrett Walker

Presented by Houston Tomorrow and Metro

Sponsored by Daniel P. Barnum FAIA, TSU Center for Transportation Training & Research

Is there any transit future beyond today's service? How good is Houston's transit system now? Are the University and Uptown lines threatened? What needs to happen to grow the system? Are big changes coming to the bus network? What can citizens do to make it all happen? All this and more.
