The Houston METRO is a comprehensive transportation system serving Houston and the surrounding area. METRO's local service fare can be paid with cash, tokens, and a variety of passes. You may want to consider a Day Pass, which costs $2 and is good for 24 hours of unlimited rides on local service only. Day Passes are purchased on the bus as you board. METRORail, Houston's light rail line, is a fast, convenient, and safe way to travel between Downtown, Midtown, the Museum District, the Texas Medical Center, Reliant Park, and the South Fannin Street Park & Ride lot. In areas where METRO bus service is not easily accessible, a variety of alternative commuter services, including RideSponsor, RideShare, METROVan, and Guaranteed RideHome programs, are available. For detailed route information, METROLine provides recorded service information 24 hours a day, seven days a week in English and Spanish.
