FTA Approves University Corridor Light Rail Transit Project

Text size: A A

The Federal Transit Administration notified Houston’s METRO that it approved Houston’s University Corridor Light Rail Transit project into the preliminary engineering phase of the FTA’s New Starts program.

METRO can move forward with engineering activities as publication of final environmental impact statement and approval of a record of decision are eminent.

The University Corridor is an 11.3-mi double-track, 19-station, LRT line. Implementation of the line is projected to improve public transit travel among commuters along Richmond Avenue. The line is projected to generate 49,000 boardings per day by 2030.
