METRO crews continue to asses conditions and will bring up more routes when possible. All three METRORail lines are operating, but riders should expect delays. 


At the City of Houston's request, overnight METROLift assisted in moving 270 people to temporary warming centers. 

METROLift service is now available for essential trips only today. Due to uncertain road conditions, it is still possible METROLift will not be able to reach certain areas to pick up patrons.  Expect some delays as drivers exercise extreme caution. Customers should call 713-225-6716 to schedule trips. Requests will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

Park & Ride routes, METRO HOV/ HOT lanes and the METRO RideStores will reopen Thursday morning.


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
