METRO has announced plans regarding a future US90A rail route
connecting Missouri City to the general area of the Medical Center light
rail line. Although the exact route is under evaluation, all the
alternatives will affect the Westbury area. METRO is looking both at
light rail and heavy rail. They are looking at options on both sides of
US90A. Some of the options on our side of US90A could directly impact
properties in Westbury or Stones Throw. One alternative even shows
light rail tracks on West Airport and Hillcroft. Although the drawings
do not show where future stations may be located, it is anticipated that
at least one station will be located in our general area.

METRO will be presenting drawings with the rail alternatives at the
Westbury High School atrium on Tuesday, February 22 from 6 - 8 PM. This
is part of the Environmental Impact Study process and they are seeking
comments from the community. Comments will be accepted through March
