FREE Rides through Sunday, Jan. 22

METRO began service on the Green Line over the Harrisburg Overpass on Jan. 11.

Celebrate with us by riding free through Sunday, Jan. 22, when we'll have a community party under the bridge from 2 to 4 p.m.

Regular fares go into effect on Monday, Jan. 23.

The Board of Directors voted on Jan. 29, 2015, to move forward with the Harrisburg Overpass, awarding a contract to McCarthy Building Companies Inc. The bridge was built along the Green Line (East End), allowing cars and trains to travel over the Union Pacific East Belt freight rail line that runs north-south, west of Hughes Street. The design combines the “History of the East End” and a “Garden Wall” and incorporates crisp white LED lighting with blue accent lighting at the bridge columns to enhance the underside of the bridge.
