Overview / Benefits
The current Rail Operations Center is located seven miles south of the METRORail hub in Downtown Houston. With its end-of-the-line location, this facility isn’t centrally located.
To support and improve operations on all three light rail lines, METRO is planning to construct a new centrally located maintenance facility.
The facility is planned for a location near the intersection of Keene Street and Trentham Place. This is near the Burnett Transit Center / Casa de Amigos rail station.
It will be a two-story building designed to blend in with the neighborhood. The building will not block views of the Downtown Houston skyline.
In addition, sidewalks will be installed with the reconstruction of portions of Brooks and Keene Streets.
