METRORail Purple Line Map & Schedules

 

Southeast
The Southeast side is a community brimming with history. Emancipation Park was created in 1870 to commemorate the end of slavery in the US. The South Central YMCA played a primary role in the desegregation movement during the 1960s. The Third Ward was once home to bluesmen Lightnin’ Hopkins, Johnny Copeland and Albert Collins. Generations of students have passed through the doors of the University of Houston and Texas Southern University. Today, the Southeast community is home to progressive arts organization Project Row Houses, the Columbia Tap multi-use hike and bike trail and the nationally recognized KIPP Academy. Spend a day seeing the sights, and make sure to support the construction zone businesses that are working hard to stay open for you. Here’s a handy guide to some of the great things the Southeast has to offer. Check this page often for updates.

There are a multitude of entertainment and food destinations just waiting to be discovered along the downtown stretch of the Southeast Line.

When it’s time to eat, you have a variety of choices, from fine dining to grab-and-go sandwiches.
