    Except when places are closing at 2 in the morning. Last top for Houston buses are around 12:00 - 1:00 A.M. and begin again at 5:00 A.M.

    My bus experiences have been that, say I want to go to the other side of town to a sport place, I have to plan about an hour and fifteen minutes. Then again, Houston's really big.

    However, for something close to me, like Downtown, or the popular Washington Avenue or Midtown, it's about a half hour to forty minutes. Which is only fifteen to twenty more minutes than I'd take by car anyway.

    And weekend transportation is still quite excellent and maintains just about all the same destinations except by different routes. We have Metro Planner online that lets you plan the best route to take, and we also have an iPhone app so you can plan a route on the fly, if you're randomly somewhere downtown or something and need a ride.

      a lot, but having good bus service is one of the things, IMO, that marks a city that cares about its people.
