Harvey Suspends METRO Service Till Further Notice


METRO is suspending service until further notice. As water levels continue to rise officials are taking action to protect their customers.

METRO officials said they will continue to monitor the weather and flooding conditions as it pulls vehicles, rail and bus, and HOV/HOT lanes - from service. According to METRO’s release, “Today's catastrophic weather event has resulted in extremely dangerous and widespread flooding. Conditions have forced the city of Houston and Harris County to shut down all but emergency services.”

METRO officials urge riders to tune in to local news outlets and monitor METRO’s social media accounts like Twitter and Facebook for timely information regarding transit service. METRO also offers real-time information through its service alerts system.

The Authority operates under the same traffic and weather conditions and so officials are asking the general public to be patient and service will resume as soon as they can do so safely.

Please also note the following:

  • METRO’s T.R.I.P. app may not be an accurate source of “next bus” arrival during times of schedule fluctuation.
  • You may experience delays when calling METRO Customer Service at 713-635-4000 during this period.
  • METRO advises riders to monitor local media, and the National Weather Service for weather updates.
  • Current roadway conditions are available on TranStar’s Real-Time Traffic Map.

Sharing resources with METRO to serve the area are: Harris County, City of Houston and Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) with websites providing information about safety, weather, traffic and more during emergencies.
