HOUSTON ATTRACTIONS - HOUSTON TOURISM - TOURIST

Houston AttractionsHouston Attractions - Transport - Houston is surrounded by busy freeways with thousands of vehicles passing through each day. Driving your own vehicle to destinations across the city and fluctuating gas prices, might make riding the bus or taking a cab a more attractive option.

The Houston Metro Bus is a cheap way to ride, with $1 local fares and $2 day passes. If you are going downtown or to one of the business districts, one way commuter fares vary by which zone you are travelling to. If you are coming to the city from the suburbs, Metro has park and ride lots for you to park your vehicle and avoid rush hour traffic by riding the bus in the High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane. You can pay your fares by a Metro Pass, change or tokens, but remember that the driver cannot make change, so always have the exact amount available before you board.

If you are making more than one trip to many Houston tourist attractions, ask the driver for a Metro Day Pass to make your ride easier. Metrolift is available for passengers with disabilities. Call ahead to schedule a pick up. Remeber that if you are using this service, the driver cannot leave the vehicle to assist you into buildings. If you need help, you must arrange for assistance from someone else.

Houston TourismThe MetroRail is a great way to travel between downtown, midtown, the Museum District, Texas Medical Center and the major Houston tourism attractions. The MetroRail is quieter than most vehicles, so your ride should be enjoyable. Tickets to ride can be purchased at any ticket vending machine for $1 by cash, credit or debit cards and even tokens. You can also use bus passes on the MetroRail.

Houston Taxi Cabs are another way to travel around the city to the different tourist attractions in Houston. There are several different cab companies to choose from. If you have alot of people travelling aith you, the cabs can accomodate you with larger vehicles such as mini vans. Cab fares will be more expensive than the bus or MetroRail, but if you are in the suburbs where the bus rarely runs or does not run at all, this is a fair option.
