Arts in Transit

The Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County, Texas (METRO) provides the people of the Houston region with effective and efficient transit services. However, METRORail is more than just a means of travel, it is the thread that ties the communities along its path together - uniting people, cultures and neighborhoods as one.

Take a look at any METRORail station across the region and you’ll quickly discover that it’s more than just a simple structure. You’ll witness art imitating life on or near each and every one of our platforms. Watch as a lifeless transit structure becomes a dynamic part of the community it serves.

Art is about expression, and transit is about mobility. Thanks to your support, the METRO Arts in Transit program has truly taken something as fundamental as a train platform, and transformed them into literal works of art.
