METRO providing heat at bus stops

January 8, 2010 6:06:36 AM PST
The arctic blast is here and it's going to stay around for a few days. Be prepared before you walk out the door this morning. Some of you may get some help staying warm. Being outside in this weather for too long can be dangerous, so Harris County and the City of Houston are making sure people have a place to stay warm today.

At least 18 transit centers are operating with space heaters to keep patrons warm all the way until midnight tonight and at 28 park and ride lots, people who drive will be greeted by heaters as well. That will go on until 10:30am.

Metro Lift vehicles are being brought in to be used as mobile warming centers.
