Despite Reliant Park changing its name to NRG Park in 2014, the station, interestingly, continued to bear its former name for two more years. In late 2016, METRO finally changed its name to Stadium Park/Astrodome, yet opted not to rename it after NRG.
Points of interest near Reliant Park Station include convention and entertainment facilities such as the Astrodome, NRG Stadium, NRG Arena and NRG Center.

The station also serves commuters working downtown or in the Texas Medical Center area, many of whom live in large apartment and condominium complexes located nearby.
Reliant Park Station includes the only closed platform in the system. The station has a second platform on the Southbound Side opposite the island platform that is not in use.
