new reliant

Reliant is welcoming Super Bowl LI by offering free rides on all three METRORail lines Monday, Jan. 30 through Wednesday, Feb. 1. 


"This offers an excellent opportunity for folks in our region to experience the many attractions this world-class event brings to Houston while enjoying the convenience and access our transportation network offers," said METRO President & CEO Tom Lambert.


Several Super Bowl events are within walking distance of METRORail including Super Bowl Live, NFL Experience and Game City Showcase. Large crowds are expected, and parking is limited, so taking the rail is a great way to reach events with less hassle. 


“At Reliant and NRG we are excited to welcome the world to Houston and host the big game at ‘our house’, NRG Stadium. As part of our mission to power, protect and simplify life, we’re ready to partner with METRO to energize and transport fans to all the fun across town,” said Elizabeth Killinger, president, Reliant and NRG Retail.


METRO encourages patrons to Know Before You Go and map out trips using the RideMETRO App before leaving home. Fans can use the Houston Super Bowl app to look up sanctioned Super Bowl  events.
