Interview with Gilbert Garcia and Christof Spieler

To say the least, 2010 has been an eventful year for Metro. I think everyone would agree that in many ways, the agency is in stronger shape and is headed in a better direction than it was at this time last year. I thought this would be a good time to get a handle on where Metro sees itself now and where it sees itself going, so I sat down last week for a conversation with Metro board chair Gilbert Garcia and board member Christof Spieler. We covered a lot of ground, including the status of the FTA grants, the University line, improvements to bus service, the next referendum, and more. (We spoke before their settlement with CAF was announced, or I’d have asked about that as well.) Check it out:

My thanks to Garcia and Spieler for taking the time to talk to me, and to Spieler for setting things up.
