Celebrating MLK Day

Next Monday, Jan. 15, we are celebrating the life and achievements of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a civil rights activist who is most well-known for his campaign to end racial segregation on public transportation and who advocated for racial equality in the United States.

Join METRO to attend the many city-wide celebrations, including a parade that starts downtown and a parade that starts in Midtown, the Taste of Houston. or a visit to the MLK statue at MacGregor Park. In addition to these festivities, one of the best ways to honor King's legacy is to celebrate with volunteer work.

METRO will be operating a regular weekday schedule for METRORail, local and commuter bus service.  Our Customer Care Center will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., or use our Google-powered Trip Planner.

The RideStores and Lost & Found will be closed, along with METROLIft's Customer Service offices. Find more details here.

In the meantime, on this holiday, remember to celebrate justice, peace and reconciliation. As his widow Coretta Scott King said on The King Center's website, "We are called on this holiday, not merely to honor, but to celebrate the values of equality, tolerance and interracial sister and brotherhood he so compellingly expressed in his great dream for America…May we who follow Martin now pledge to serve humanity."
