Frequently Asked Questions About Houston Charter Bus Rentals

1. What public transportation can my group take in Houston?

Your group can take the METRORail, which has three different lines: the Red Line, Green Line, and Purple Line. These lines connect to several major areas of Houston, such as Downtown Houston, the Museum District, the Texas Medical Center, the Theater District, and the southeast section of the city. There is also an extensive network of METRO Buses that serve various neighborhoods and connect to the rail system. Using public transportation for your group has its limitations, including set routes and limited operating hours, whereas charter buses operate entirely around your schedule and timing. 

2. Where can my charter bus park in Houston?

Houston is a largely car-dependent city, which means you can find plenty of parking lots and street parking at Houston’s most popular destinations. We’ve created a blog about parking a charter bus in Houston for more information. For venues with limited parking options, you can have your charter bus driver drop you off and wait at your hotel until it’s time for them to pick your group back up again.

3. What are the best convention centers and meeting venues in Houston?

The largest convention center in Houston is the George R. Brown Convention Center. It hosts several events a year and has 1.9 million square feet of usable space. Other options for meeting venues include The Work Lodge, Local Office West University, The Bell Tower on 34th, and Spring Branch meeting rooms. We can pair you with the right charter bus in Houston for any of these venues, whether you’re meeting for a teambuilding event, corporate lunch, or quarterly meeting

4. How’s the traffic in Houston?

Like most major cities, Houston falls victim to rush hour traffic jams. Traffic tends to pick up around noon and is the worst between 5 PM and 6 PM. As of 2022, The TomTom Traffic Index ranks Houston’s traffic as 284th worst in the world. This is slightly worse than other major Texas cities like San Antonio, which was ranked 346th, or Dallas, which was ranked 306th. Traffic is comparable to Atlanta and Minneapolis, which are similar in the rankings. Delays are inevitable if you’re traveling in the afternoon time, but we recommend trying to avoid the roads if possible between 5 PM and 6 PM.

5. What are the most popular annual events in Houston?

One of Houston’s largest events is the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, which is the largest livestock exhibition and rodeo in the world and a Texas tradition. Another giant yearly event is the Houston Pride Festival, which is a highlight of the summer and draws in massive crowds. There is also the Houston Children’s Festival, which is recognized as the largest children's festival in the United States, and a wide range of activities, games, and celebrity appearances. If you’re considering going to one of Houston’s many popular annual events, or you’re an event organizer looking to arrange logistics, you can use our network to book Houston charter buses for the occasion

6. Where can I go in the Houston area with a charter bus

National charter bus provides direct services to a number of Houston suburbs. Book with us for a bus rental in The Woodlands, a bus to Sugar Land, a charter bus rental in League City, or bus rentals to Baytown, Conroe, Pasadena, and other suburbs. If you don't see your destination listed here, don't worry--we're able to arrange transportation to areas throughout Houston, in Texas, and across the United States.
