Lawsuit Against METRO Dismissed

On Thursday, Oct. 29, 2015  Harris County District Judge Brent Gamble dismissed the lawsuit filed against METRO and Chairman Gilbert Garcia in relation to Uptown's dedicated bus lane project on Post Oak Blvd. METRO is pleased that the court agreed with METRO's position that the lawsuit had no merit. 

"With this recent ruling, it is my hope that people will now come together to insure that the project is as successful as it can be," said METRO Chairman Gilbert Garcia. "Let's focus on maximizing community input while minimizing construction delays."
