Riders on the METRORail Red Line can expect some service disruptions Oct. 31 and Nov. 1, according to an Oct. 29 news release from the Harris County Metropolitan Transit Authority.

The transit authority will offer a two-way bus shuttle service between the Fannin South and Downtown Transit Center stations, as work will be done to make rail improvements and perform scheduled maintenance, according to the release.

METRO staff and/or platform signage will direct riders to board nearby bus shuttle stops, a full list of which can be found here.

Shuttles will run every 10 minutes or sooner.

METRO is reminding riders that its TRIP App and Next Bus Arrival texting service may not accurately depict departure and arrival information throughout the weekend.


For more information, riders can check METRO’s social media pages for updates, in addition to its service alerts system.
