Ground Transportation between IAH (Bush Airport) and Houston Hobby

by rajiv00

Hi All,
Any recommendations on how I could connect between the two airports? Either through train, metro, bus or shuttle? Cabs seem a little expensive at this point. Also, with each of these options, how much time should I budget for between the 2 airports as I am getting into Houston Bush and connecting with cheap SouthWest from Houston Hobby.
Thanks in advance.
Rajiv

It will cost you around USD $23.00 and take at least one hour 15 min. Check out the following web site, you can make reservations right on line. www.expressshuttle.com the only alternative is the public bus, and that probably will take forever.

The previous post sounds right. The path between the two airports is directly through the center of town on major highways, so the length of the trip timewise can vary considerably based on the time of day.

Look at http://iah.houstonairportsystem.org/transportation for a discussion of transportation links between the two airports. No train or metro. No express bus, so bus connections would be time-consuming. Taxis (as you will see on the site) are a fixed fee at $51.50US from Bush to Houston.

So, going with a shuttle company (see the site) that specializes in making the trip might well be the best bet, unless time is a problem (in which case, a taxi would be better)...

Have you tried landing in Hobby Airport and yes it is about $50 bucks. 45min to a1hr drive between airports if their is no traffics,,, you might be in the freeway for more than two depending on accidents and time that you catch the cab!
The money you think you might save on the trip might end up costing you the same depending on what you spend while you are in Houston.

Thank You All.
This is very helpful. My solution to the problem is staying in Houston Bush airport and sticking to Continental to go to San Antonio and to Dallas. Both Continental and American offer the exact same fare as SouthWest. But with Southwest I would have to change airports. So, I am going to stick to Continental and avoid the hassle of changing airports. But thank you all!

Travel Tips for Houston

Just a 'short' drive north of...

by Jmill42

Just a 'short' drive north of Houston brings you to The Woodlands, TX. This place is special because of the unique setup of the city. But, the most important thing about this city for a tourist is the Cynthia Mitchell Woods Pavillion. This place hosts MANY concerts with huge names appearing monthly. Also, the architecture of the building is super cool. There are seats under a white canopy roof with huge fans, like those wind-power generating ones you see. But, then there is this huge grassy hill which you can sit on. People bring blankets and have a great time laying out in the grass with their friends while listening to their favorite artists playing the tunes. It is a great venue to see your favorite band, so get on Ticketmaster and go!

Entertainment onboard the flight

by mafootje

We have been flying with a few airlines to the states, least favorite of ours are, KLM, Northwest and Martinair. More favorite are British Airways and United Airlines, But this time (May 2003) we flew for the first time with continental in a new Boeing 767-200. On board every seat had an entertainment center, with one control you could use satellite phone (still very expensive), listen to different radio channels, watch different movie and tv channels and play videogames (our first time we had that). Except for the satellite phone all where free.

Seating space was good, space in front and width of the chair also was good (economy).

A feature which we liked very much was the foldable and in height adjustable headrest all seats had so there was no need for the neckrest cushions. The provided cushions where more thicker and softer as we have had on any other airplane till now and also the blanket was one of the better ones.

There is no indivudal air control, but there was no need for that, temperature was comfortable and not to hot. Another good thing is that your allowed to keep the headphones which are given to you on a transatlantic flight.

It was also since a long time i didn't end up coughing and having red eyes after or during the flight...

But not all our experiences where that good with continental, i am planning to put my experience with voluntering my seats on my North America Page soon, those were less pleasant..

Voted Best Pizza in Houston

by CLillard about Star Pizza

Located in an old house, this has a college atmosphere. But certainly families go here too for the awesome pizza and relazed atmosphere! You may want to call your order in advance, because the pizzas take 20-30 minutes to cook. Chicago Style Pizza

Museum of Fine Arts

by iwys

Houston's Museum of Fine Arts is really two museums in one as it is housed in two separate buildings, each with its own character. They are the Caroline Wiess Law Building at 1001 Bissonnet Street and the Audrey Jones Beck Building at 5601 Main Street. It's not too inconvenient though as the buildings are opposite each other. The Caroline Wiess building houses permanent exhibitions of 20th and 21st century art as well as collections of Oceanic art, Asian art, Indonesian gold artifacts, and Pre-Columbian and sub-Saharan African art, including the biggest collection of African Gold in the world. The Beck Building houses permanent collections of Antiquities and European art. It is also used for temporary exhibitions.

As well as the permanent exhibtions there are some major temporary exhibitions, which cost extra. When I was there, I saw the big Pompeii exhibition and it was superb.

Opening hours: Tuesday, Wednesday 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
Thursday 10:00 a.m.–9:00 p.m.
Friday, Saturday 10:00 a.m.–7:00 p.m.
Sunday 12:15 p.m.–7:00 p.m.
Closed Monday, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day

Admission: Tues, Wed, Fri, Sat & Sun $7 (+ $10 for the temporary Pompeii Exhibition). Thurs: FREE

Tansco Tower fountain

by el_ruso

This fountain, located next to the Transco Tower (whose current owner is rather unsuccessfully trying to call the Williams Tower), is one of the nicest places in the city, and another popular place for newlyweds' photos.
