If you visit the METRO website you will find that they are very vague as to the exact alignments. However, priority corridors have been identified and ok'd by the voters.

Do they have any policy plans available? All I saw on their website was 2 power point presentations.

I took the virtual tour of the Light Rail line (offered on the Houston Chronicle website) and it looks promising and really modern .

Congratulations to Houston - time-wise, you beat Seattle, Cinncinati, Tampa, Colombus, and many other cities in implementing and building something that just makes sense... the benefits are to follow and you will be proud of what you have done (and will want more of the same, more)..
