It’s football season, which means tens of thousands of people will descend upon NRG Stadium on game days to support our Houston Texans. So, on a rainy Tuesday, I made my way to the Red Line to make a quick safety check at the station.
As will be the case for many football fans, my trip began in my personal vehicle; I drove to Fannin South Park & Ride. On game days, fans can pay $15 to park, which includes rail fare to and from Stadium Park/Astrodome Station, just one station north of the Park & Ride.
On a day with a major event, there will be METRO employees, police officers, and others on site to assist the quick loading and unloading of rail vehicles. Always have your fare item ready before you reach the platform. If you have not yet purchased a fare, you may do so at the Ticket Vending Machine on the platform, or simply download the Q Mobile Ticketing app and activate the tickets upon boarding.
Once I arrived at the station, I saw a few incidents worth noting:
There are eight Texans home games this season. You can see the season schedule here.
