METRORail Service Impacted By Downtown Construction This Weekend

On Sunday, Nov. 4, 2018, METRORail service will be modified along all METRORail lines beginning at the start of service until 7 p.m. due to construction work in the downtown area.

Temporary adjustments to rail service will take place at the METRORail Red Line and the METRORail Green/Purple Lines.

The University of Houston-Downtown (UHD) is located between the affected areas of the Red Line--which is from the Burnett Transit Center/Casa de Amigos to the Downtown Transit Center.

A free METRO bus shuttle will run every 10 minutes providing uninterrupted service to riders.
