Automated on-board announcements advise of each
approaching station, with some of the commentary in
both English and Spanish. On at least one outbound run a couple of
months after the system opened, each such burst was decidedly out
of synch with the location of the train. It caused some
amusement for those passengers "in the know," and likely some
confusion for the others aboard.
This view is at Main Street Square, northbound platform. Panels of light display
changing pastel colors from their sidewalk poles.
All the streets in downtown Houston run askew from cardinal
"Northbound" on Main St. is actually slanted quite a bit to the northeast.
