Rail Service Disrupted



METRORail service will be suspended for three weekends in September and October to allow Texas Children’s Hospital to continue construction on a pedestrian bridge over Fannin Street that will connect all of the hospital’s patient care facilities.

Rail service will be unavailable the following dates and times:

  • Friday, Sept. 23 at 9:00 p.m. to Sunday, Sept. 25 at 11:59 p.m.
  • Friday, Oct. 14 at 9:00 p.m. to Sunday, Oct. 16 at 11:59 p.m.
  • Friday, Oct. 21 at 8:00 p.m. to Sunday, Oct. 23 at 11:59 p.m.

During the shutdown, rail customers will be served by shuttle buses (Route 700) running parallel to the rail line, both north and south, except in the Medical Center.  Patrons who normally board from the Memorial Hermann Hospital/Houston Zoo or Dryden/TMC station platforms can find the shuttle bus on Main Street for travel north and southbound. 

Buses will not be able to access the UH-Downtown Station due to construction.

Normal rail service will resume Monday, September 26, October 17 and October 24, 2011.
