To improve mobility and air quality in the Greater Houston region, STV supported the efforts of the Houston Metropolitan Transit Authority (METRO) in managing the development of a New Starts light rail transit system in the city. The initial light rail line runs 7.5 miles from Downtown Houston to the Astrodome, and is comprised of 16 stations and a maintenance facility.

STV worked with METRO personnel to function as the project management team, administering and overseeing every component of the program, including $150 million of additional improvements that were derived from local sources. Fast-tracked and completed in a record-breaking four years, the project came in 10 months ahead of schedule.
