|Metro gave the Houston Super Bowl Host Committee a lift in its 100 Days to Super Bowl LI celebration on Friday by unveiling the first four busses in its fleet to be wrapped in Super Bowl LI messaging and graphics. METRO debuted the busses in a ceremony at its Main Street terminal.|
Representatives from the city, METRO and Host Committee all talked about the important role METRO is going to play during Super Bowl LI and marvelled at the designs on the busses.
“The world will be coming to Houston,” Houston City Councilman Dwight Boykins told the crowd at the unveiling. “And when they come they will ride METRO.”
METRO President and CEO talked about how well prepared METRO is to handle the large crowds that will come to Houston and said they will be ready and waiting with extra services when Super Bowl Week arrives.
The four busses each were adorned with different logos, there are eight different designs that will be used, and all hit the road to run their routes following the ceremony. Eventually, 551 busses and trains will be decorated with the Super Bowl graphics.
Host Committee President and CEO Sallie Sargent thanked METRO for their support of the Super Bowl and reminded people that, like METRO, the Super Bowl is for everyone. She also talked about the additional routes that will be in place during Super Bowl week, especially a dedicated loop that will take people from Uptown and the Galleria area directly to downtown on Memorial Drive.
