Rapid Transit

Introducing METRORapid

METRORapid is an environmentally-friendly rapid transit vehicle that looks like a bus but runs like rail. METRO is excited to bring this first-of-its-kind service to the Houston region.

METRORapid has many unique features, including:

  • Top-of-the-line platforms
  • Dedicated lane
  • Priority clearance at traffic signals
  • Modern design offering 100% accessibility with wider doorways and level boarding
  • Infrastructure that promotes long-term growth

And just like rail, METRORapid will run on a convenient frequency-based schedule, so you can always count on your next bus arriving quickly. That means faster connections to help improve travel in the region.

The first METRORapid vehicles will begin traveling through Uptown in 2020.
