I found it hard to believe that a major city like Houston had no dedicated transfer system from the airport to the city but it is indeed true. Arriving into terminal D I was told the info desk didn't have any information, moving to terminal...More

The best deal in public transportation is the bus ride from center city Houston to IAH. Similar bus accomodations to the FlyAway in Los Angles but at $1.25 ($0.60 for seniors). Best if you travel light.....you have to carry and cart your own suitcase. Watch...More

Compared to the public transit systems of other large cities (NYC, San Francisco, Chicago, etc...), Houston's is pretty cheap at $1.25 per ride. (And a Day Pass for $3, but you'll probably never need one). I hear Houstonians complain all the time about the quality...More
