Exceptional people. Extraordinary values.

METRO is an organization made up of many different people who help serve our region’s growing transportation needs. Our culture is driven by 3 core values:

Act with integrity
Our employees are dependable, honest and transparent.

Consider others before self
Our employees are caring and fair.

Serve with respect
Our employees are courteous, recognize others' good work, give credit where it’s due, and are mindful of what and how things are said.


These values have produced a positive, supportive work culture with friendly employees and the opportunity to advance from within. In fact, every month, METRO’s employee newsletter includes a section called METRO Milestones which includes a list of employees who have recently received promotions.

All of this has resulted in one of Houston’s most stable work environments. About 20% of METRO employees have been here more than 20 years and many of them have made friends for life with their co-workers.
