The Burnett Transit Center is an elevated light rail station on the METRORail Red Line in Houston, Texas, United States. It was built as part of the North/Red Line Extension, and opened on December 21, 2013.[1]

It has three tracks accessed by two island platforms, one for each direction. The center track is used by northbound trains short-turning to return southbound. These trains unload passengers onto the eastern (northbound) platform, and load passengers from the western (southbound) platform.

The station features a six-bay bus terminal and a "Kiss and Ride" facility at ground level.

The station is located above the intersection of North Main Street and Burnett Street, which was once proposed for a multimodal transit hub prior to 2011.[2]
