COLD WEATHER EMERGENCY INFORMATION

Houston is experiencing dangerously cold weather. It is not safe to be without heat tonight. If you need a warm place to go our friends at the Coalition for the Homeless have put together the following list:


Houston Metro Warming Stations

Metro has announced that they will be providing warming stations during the cold blast at all of the transit center locations. This means that riders can wait for the bus inside a warm metro lift bus while they wait for their bus.

No one will be turned away if show up to stay on a warm bus – even if not riding.


Shelters
The following shelters have announced changes in access and hours in light of the freezing temperatures in the next few days:
