The new METRORapid Inner Katy line will provide:
Fast and frequent service
Universally accessible service for all between Downtown and Uptown throughout the day, at night and on weekends.
Faster and more reliable trips
The project will accommodate all of METRO’s Regional Express trips along the I-10 West and US 290 Freeways that currently get bogged down in traffic between I-610 and Downtown. Transit-only lanes in both directions will help reduce travel time and improve schedule reliability for thousands of current riders.
At Northwest Transit Center:
• Create direct connection with METRORapid Silver Line so you can ride from Downtown to Uptown without having to transfer
• Link with several METRO local and Regional Express routes – increasing connectivity to destinations like Texas Medical Center, Greenway Plaza, Memorial Park and Westchase
The project will also provide a fast connection between the METRORapid Silver Line and the METRORail Green and Purple Lines.
• Serve current riders
• Accommodate expected population growth in this area
• Improve access to jobs and economic opportunity
