Electrical Work Prompts Temporary Service Interruption on METRORail


On Friday, July 31, 2020, light rail service will be modified along METRORail’s Green and Purple lines to allow Centerpoint Energy crews to complete high-voltage electrical repairs. 

Transit service modifications will begin at the start of service until approximately 6:30 p.m. at the following locations:

Green and Purple lines: Two-way bus shuttle service will be provided between Theater District and EaDo / Stadium stations. METRO staff and/or platform signage will direct riders to board at nearby bus shuttle stops. A list of shuttle stops can be found here.

Bus shuttles will run every 10 minutes or sooner — while also complying with METRO’s social distancing guidelines — to provide service for customers. 

METRO’s TRIP App and Next Bus Arrival Texting service may not reflect accurate departure and arrival information during this time. Bus service also requires additional travel time, so allow more time for your trip. Please monitor METRO’s Twitter and Facebook pages for updates. METRO also offers real-time information through its service alerts system.

Customers may also contact METRO’s Customer Service Center at 713-635-4000 if they have any questions or need trip planning information.
