HOUSTON--()--Reliant is helping “bring the energy” once again to Houston Texans home games by offering free METRORail rides to Texans fans headed to and from Reliant Park during regular season home games.
“We are thrilled to be part of such an outstanding team and appreciate the opportunity to support their fans and our local community.”
“Texans fans energize the team and Reliant is proud to bring that energy to the game,” said Manny Rodriguez, Vice President of Sponsorships & Charitable Giving, Reliant. “We are thrilled to be part of such an outstanding team and appreciate the opportunity to support their fans and our local community.”
Last year, Reliant introduced the METRORail program and provided free rides to more than 155,000 fans. Reliant hopes its efforts will encourage more riders to support the environment by keeping vehicles off the road and out of traffic.
To help promote the program, one METRORail train will sport a custom graphic wrap with Reliant’s 2012-2013 slogan “Bring the Energy” and will feature the Texans’ All-Pro wide receiver Andre Johnson. The wrapped METRORail train will be one of the trains used to take fans to and from the stadium on home game days free of charge.
The offer is valid for all patrons on every Texans home game day from 5:30 a.m. to midnight beginning with this Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins.
