Houston on the Cheap: METRO Airport Direct gets you to or from downtown for less than $5!

Hey AAM attendees!  As one never to pass a good deal, I want to share this with you. . .

If you’re flying into Houston via Bush Intercontinental Airport and plan on staying at one of the downtown host hotels, please consider taking the new METRO Airport Direct luxury shuttle between the airport and downtown. For only $4.50 (vs. an approx. $45 cab ride), you can ride in comfort aboard a super-clean, roomy, comfortable shuttle with cool AC and the ability to spread out.

The shuttle leaves from the airport baggage claim area and is very fast, with stops at many downtown hotels. Chances are, if it doesn’t stop at yours, you’ll only need to walk a couple bocks. It does make round trips from the GRB Convention Center hotel (Hilton Americas-Houston), among many others.

You can find a schedule, map and everything else you need to know by clicking here.

And check out the poster below.

Safe travels and we’ll see you in Houston!
