Planning a trip to Houston, Texas? Learn about the best ways to get around the city in this travel video.
Chances are, if you’re visiting Houston, you’ll need a car. Heavy traffic and aggressive drivers can make driving in Houston difficult, so avoid the rush hour as often as possible.
On the bright side, there’s lots of inexpensive or free parking and the layout of the streets isn’t too confusing.
As long as you have a good map and you allow plenty of time for travel, you’ll be fine.
If driving is not an option for you, you’re not completely out of luck. Houston’s light rail system may not be the locals’ first choice for getting around, but it covers the downtown and a few other areas. It’s also inexpensive and easy to use.
But Houston is huge, so if you want to see much more than the downtown area you’re going to need another way to get around. The bus system will take you much further, though it may not always be a quick trip.
Both the light rail and the bus system are operated by the METRO system, and can be paid for with the same money card.
Visit the METRO website for maps, schedules, information about pricing, and a trip planner.
If all else fails, you can always take a taxi. You might be able to hail one on the street if you’re downtown, but it’s usually best to call one.
Getting around Houston isn’t always quick and easy, but if you allow plenty of time and bring a sense of adventure, you’ll be just fine.
