METRO Service Changes During World Series Games at Minute Maid Park

METRO Street Teams will be on hand beginning Friday, Oct. 27 through Sunday, Oct. 29 helping customers navigate service changes downtown due to detours and street closures when the World Series arrives in Houston.  

As fans prepare to cheer on the Astros at Minute Maid Park, they should be aware of closures along Congress and Texas Avenues, as well as La Branch, Preston, Jackson, Crawford and Hamilton Streets. METRO will not be servicing five bus stops in those areas.  More than two dozen routes, including Park & Ride and local bus, will be impacted.  Customers will be redirected to a nearby stop.
