“Pricy and a bit scary.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Bus wait is long, and the last time i checked it is pay per ride with a very short transfer ticket life. The bus system is looming, not knowing exactly what to make of Houston's cryptic highway and road system.

“Great way to avoid parking charges downtown or at Reliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

I use the tram at Rodeo or football at Reliant. Park near one of the stops where free on street parking is available. Use the tram to go to your event, then take the tram back to where you parked. Very quick entry/exit from any event. No big rush where you park.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

I think the Metro rail going from south loop into downtown is excellent . Convenient. Quick. Cheap. Wish there was more of it.

“Too few routes for surburbia”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Great if you want to hop around downtown, but absolutely useless to get from the suburbs to anywhere other than downtown without a multi-hour ride.

“Houston's answer to mass transit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

The tram to medical center from downtown is a good way to avoid traffic. Buses are usually kept clean with the park n ride feature a great way to get downtown. Rode Metro for 10 years
