When Brian Moeller, 37, moved to Houston in 2013 from Denver, following his wife by about six months, the first thing he did was find a job.
“We had an apartment in Katy close to her work, my job was in Westchase,” Moeller said. “Easy enough, I’ll take the bus.”
Except it wasn’t easy enough. At the time the commute to his job overseeing computer systems for a title management company would have required his wife to drop him off at a park ride, where he would ride into Uptown, then take two buses to work.
“I couldn’t believe, living there, no buses could get me to my job — which isn’t in the middle of nowhere. It’s in an office park. A big one.”
