Welcome to the Yale Club of Houston - Li'l Elis - Tour of METRO Rail Operations Center

Li'l Elis - Tour of METRO Rail Operations Center

With METRO Chairman and Yale alum Gilbert Garcia

Come tour METRO’s Rail Operations Center (ROC) with METRO Chairman and Yale alum Gilbert Garcia!


The tour will begin in the Control Center where we'll learn how the rail system is monitored. We'll also visit the rail service & body shop where the trains are repaired, cleaned and washed, and finish up in the simulator where there’s a chance to learn how to drive to train!


Now in its eighth year of service, Houston's METRORail boasts the second-highest rail ridership per mile in the nation.  With the introduction of METRORail, over 200 bus routes along the route from Reliant to UH Downtown were able to be retired.  As METRO gears up to expand rail service across Houston, you & your family won't want to miss this chance to experience the heart of our rail operations! 


Date & Time: Saturday, September 24th, 2 pm

Address: 1601 W. Bellfort at Fannin, just south of the 610 loop
