Downtown Houston's access to transportation in Houston is second to none. Improved access and mobility, however, continues to be a major focus of the Downtown District, Central Houston, the City of Houston, METRO and TxDot-- including the planning, design and development of an effective, attractive and expanded mass public transit system.

A network of integrated multi-modal transit systems provides convenient travel options for several hundred thousand employees and visitors commuting in and out of Downtown daily. A major transit hub for METRO Local Bus, Park & Ride, and Light Rail, over 105,000 passengers transit through Downtown every day.

Downtown is strongly committed to environmental sustainability. ‘Green’ transportation options, including Houston’s BCycle bike share program, along with an extensive network of sidewalks and a growing number of bicycle lanes, provide commuters with alternative transit options and reduce car dependency.

A 2018 commuter survey revealed that approximately 32 percent of Downtown employees use public transit and another 13 percent use alternative modes to get to work, compared to only 2.2 percent public transit users in the Houston region.
