Getting Around in Houston

Limited bus service is available to Bush Intercontinental Airport making taxis and private shuttle buses a better bet. Bus service to Hobby Airport is more reliable. Both airports have car rental agencies.

The Metro network of over 100 bus lines serves the Houston area from north of IAH south all the way to Clear Lake. Much of the system is geared for the weekday commute in and out of the downtown area which means that weekend service to outlying areas like Clear Lake and the Johnson Space Center isn't the best. Light rail is now in service and runs the main street corridor from Reliant Park, through the Medical Center, the Museum District, and into downtown near the theatre district.

By far the best way to get around Houston is with a car or SUV. Parking is plentiful and usually free and many sights are clustered together so you can ditch your wheels and walk around a bit when you like. Other sights and attractions are so scattered that driving is the only convenient way to reach them. Driving is on the right.
