METRO's Response to COVID-19 Supports Area Leadership

METRO is playing an active role in supporting city and county leaders as well as public health officials in the fight against COVID-19 (the coronavirus).  From transporting one-third of Texas Medical Center employees to work to providing relief buses for health care workers at COVID-19 testing sites, METRO continues to adapt for the health and safety of our community.
Last month, in support of social distancing, METRO began running a TMC shuttle from Fannin South to Hermann Park/Rice U station every 12 minutes during morning and afternoon peak times. The shuttles reduce crowding on the METRORail Red Line and give health care workers another transit option.
