METRO rail crews work to restore power.


METRORail riders can now travel normally on all three lines. Rail service is restored and fully operational. METRO maintenance crews worked overnight and through Friday morning to make repairs to an underground power system component. The failure was discovered Thursday evening and resulted in the immediate suspension of rail service on portions of the Red, Green and Purple lines. 


During the outage, nearly 30 bus shuttles operated to help passengers complete their trips in Downtown Houston. METRO apologizes for delays and inconvenience that resulted from the power failure and appreciates everyone's patience.  


Riders are asked to monitor METRO Twitter and Facebook pages for timely information regarding transit service. METRO also offers real-time information through its service alerts system.  METRO 's Customer Care team is available at 713-635-4000.
