METRO is providing free rides Friday, Nov. 3 for all services to help ease traffic congestion in downtown Houston during the Houston Astros World Series Championship Parade. Fans are encouraged to use the buses and METRORail. There will be parking available along the rail corridor, Minute Maid Park Lot C and the NRG Stadium Orange Lot. Drivers should access the NRG lot from Kirby Drive. Standard parking rates will apply. For a link to the system map and to plan your trip visit www.ridemetro.org
The parade route near city hall will force the closure of several city streets and cause detours on more than a half dozen bus routes. A full list of the detoured routes can be found at www.ridemetro.org.
The street closures and increased foot traffic will cause delays. Patience is appreciated. Outbound service for Park & Ride routes will begin early at Noon and run every 30 minutes.
Additional METRO police officers and ambassadors will be stationed along the system to provide directions and help ensure safety. Pedestrians, cyclists and motorists are reminded to be pay attention to METRORail and to Stop, Look and Listen.
