An urban planner and structural engineer, he is vice president and director of planning at consulting firm Huitt-Zollars and teaches courses on transportation in the architecture and engineering schools of Rice University. In his talk, which is hosted by Austin transit advocates and grassroots organizations and introduced by Mayor Steve Adler, Spieler will explore the lessons Austin might learn from other cities’ experiences.
