Input Please! METRO Wants New Name for Landmark Station



METRO wants the public to help fill in the blank as it prepares to rename a landmark rail station.  Currently, the stop is known as Reliant Park Station and is a key destination for fans headed to some of Houston's biggest events.  That area and the stadium, however, are no longer branded as Reliant Park.  Selecting a name that is more reflective of the area's history and landmarks will reduce confusion for riders and reduce the need for future name changes that are tied to corporate shifts.

For the next two weeks, people can voice their opinions on three proposed names or suggest an alternative using this online survey.

METRO's Board of Directors will make a final decision and vote on the new name at an upcoming METRO Board of Directors meeting.
