Transcript ALL ABOARD! LIGHT RAIL COMES TO HOUSTON The pedestrians crowding downtown Houston sidewalks New Year's Day weren't holdovers from the previous night's revelry — instead, they were among the first to ride the city's latest mode of mass transit. Houston's 7.5-mile MetroRail line, which runs from UH-Downtown to Reliant Park, opened Jan. 1 after three years of construction. About 15,000 people turned out the first day of service, admiring the line's sleek silver trains and its 1 6 stations, each designed by local artists. The MetroRail line is Houston's first rail transit system in 64 years; electric streetcars, which had served the city for about 70 years, stopped running in 1940. The Metropolitan Transit Authority had supported a light rail system since its creation in 1979, but citizens voted down a rail proposal in 1983. "The MetroRail is a step in the right direction to a more urban, livable Houston," UH junior biochemistry major Ian Rees told The Daily Cougar during the line's first week of operation. "I live right on the light rail and I work in the Medical Center, so it's really convenient for me. I've been waiting for it to open with great anticipation since they started building it." By April, the $324 million rail line had about 14,000 passengers a day, but it was also racking up impressive numbers in another area: rail-auto crashes, of which there had been 40 by early May. Most of the accidents were the result of drivers' running red lights or making illegal turns in front of the trains. Additional rail lines, now in the planning stages, will eventually connect downtown with Bush Intercontinental Airport, UH and the East End, Hobby Airport, the Galleria area and Southwest Houston.
