Park & Rides


Direct nonstop service to downtown, the Texas Medical Center and other major employment centers in the METRO service area is available from our Park & Ride lots. Park & Ride facilities also serve as a staging area for vanpools and carpools. 

METRO patrons who take the bus daily may park in the Park & Ride lot. However, if you park in a Park & Ride lot for three consecutive days for other purposes, you must contact the METRO Police Department to make this request. Otherwise, your car is subject to being towed. Call #673 (#MPD) by mobile phone or email MPDServices@ridemetro.org.
