METRO GETS ALL WRAPPED UP TO CELEBRATE THE MUSEUM DISTRICT
All suited up and ready to roll – a specially wrapped train promoting the Museum District hit the streets today.
One of the New METRO’s guiding principles is partnering – and the train decked in its museum best from cab-to-cab is a visual example of the agency’s collaborative effort with the Museum District.
For the next several months the purple and green “museum train” will be making the rounds along METRO’s 7.5-mile Red Line (Main Street Line).
The train wrap comes just in time for the 15th Annual Museum District Day, on Sept. 17, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Rather than circle area parking lots for limited spaces or fight the traffic, ride the rail to the free event. You can park at lots located along the Red Line or at METRO’s Fannin South lot with convenient access to the train for a safe, hassle-free ride to the event.
There are other perks to riding the Red Line to the celebration or any other day. If you show your Q Fare Card to participating museums you can enjoy offers such as discounts on general admissions or store purchases.
METRO first wrapped an entire rail car in January 2011 to promote a safety message: Stop. Think. The red-wrapped train is still running today, reminding the driving public to be cautious at rail crossings.
