Houston's 7.5 mile "starter" line began service on the first day
with that event, the city lost the
dubious distinction of being the
largest in the U.S. without electric rail transit.
The route operates between terminals at the University
of Houston - Downtown and Fannin South, southwest of center city.
Much of the way it travels along reserved street lanes, including
a long stretch along Main St. through and beyond downtown.
This photo shows an
train stopped at the northbound Main Street Square station, two stops before
the northbound terminal.
