Light-Rail Will Be Limited In Downtown This Weekend

Metro's announced they'll be doing track maintenance this weekend, so if you're planning on cruising the light rail through downtown, think again.

There will be no service between the Downtown Transit Center and UH-Downtown from 5:30 am til 2 pm on both Saturday and Sunday, Metro's Carolina Mendoza says. Instead riders will get to experience the luxury of connector buses, which will run every 15 minutes.

Light-rail service won't be affected between Fannin South and the DTC, by the way.

But plan accordingly.
