How to get from the airport

Houston is 32 km from George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and 17km from Hobby Airport (HOU). From IAH, you can take public bus 102 (with a luggage compartment) from Terminal C, which takes between 1 and 1.5 hours to downtown Houston. You will need cash to purchase a ticket from the driver and you may need to take a second bus or a taxi from the bus’s drop off point to your destination.

For a more direct service, you can arrange for an airport pick-up with your hotel. Courtesy phones are located in the baggage claim area. If you want to take a private shuttle bus or a taxi, you can find them by following the signs to the ground transportation area. Private shuttles can be booked online in advance or at ticket counters in each terminal. Airport staff will flag a taxi for you or you can use a courtesy phone if it is between 12am and 7am.

Renting a car is a popular option when visiting Texas. A “Rental Car Shuttle” bus departs each terminal for the rental car centre every five minutes, taking around five minutes to get there. You just need to follow the signs to the ground transportation area and then look for the “Rental Car” signs.

If you are arriving on a domestic flight into Hobby Airport (HOU), just follow the signs to the ground transportation area to find transport. From here, METRO Bus 40 goes to downtown Houston with a journey time of around one hour. You can also get a private shuttle or a taxi from this area. You can find the rental car counters in the baggage claim area.
