Houston METRORail Map: Houston Neighborhoods With Easy Access To The METRORail

Houston METRORail Map


According to the National Association of Realtors’ 2014 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, accessibility is one of the most influential factors when choosing a neighborhood. (See the 10 best Houston neighborhoods for accessibility.)

The Houston METRORail, a 22.7-mile light rail system, adds further accessibility to some of the Bayou City’s neighborhoods. With more than 11.3 million riders annually, the METRORail is the second most-traveled light rail in the Southern United States.

Houston neighborhoods near the Metro Rail benefit from this “new accessibility.” Over 25,000 existing homes have convenient access to stations, providing easy commutes to and from major Houston retail, entertainment, cultural, and employment centers. (See Houston condos near the METRORail.)

Homes near existing and planned Metro Rail lines can also enjoy long term benefits – including increasing property values.

As shown on the Houston METRORail map above, the 12.8-mile North/Red Line runs north to south, connecting several key Houston neighborhoods. The Green (East) and Purple (Southeast) lines are recent additions, adding 3.3 and 6.6 miles of diverging tracks to the system. Planned expansions like the University/Blue Line and the Uptown/Gold Line will connect to west and southwest neighborhoods.

Listed below are 7 of the best Houston neighborhoods near the Metro Rail.

2. East Downtown (EaDo)

Thanks to its great location near some of Houston’s major employment centers, East Downtown (or simply, EaDo) is one of the most accessible neighborhoods in the Inner Loop. Dubbed the “Art and Soul of Houston,” redevelopment efforts have also made EaDo one of Houston’s fastest growing neighborhoods.
