Metro Rail : Change to Schedule

METRO Changes Weekend Rail Schedule For Bridge Construction

METRO will change its rail service this weekend due to continued construction of an enclosed pedestrian bridge over Fannin at the Texas Children’s Hospital.

When: 5 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 23, 2010 until 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 24, 2010
Where: Between Smith Lands and Hermann Park/Rice University Stations
Why: To allow construction of a bridge for Texas Children’s Hospital

Beginning at 5 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 23 until 2 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 24, two-car trains will operate only on the northbound track between the Smith Lands and Hermann Park/Rice University stations.

As a result, all riders will be required to board and exit the trains on the northbound platforms at these locations.

Trains will be traveling in both directions using the same track, so riders will need to pay special attention to the destination signs on the front and sides of the rail car.

METRO personnel will be available to provide assistance.

Trains will run every 20 minutes during the service interruption.

Normal service will resume by 2 p.m., Sunday.
