How do I take the Metro Rail from Fanin South at Belfort to NRG stadium, to attend a football game there at 6pm Sat Sep. 5?
Thanks for your question.
Jump on the Metro Rail at Fannin and Belfort. You'll take the first stop at NRG Park.
Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hello! I mean classes. My English is not the best!
Visiting Houston job at medical center but live in Friendswood...does the metro rail runs there or the bus . please help.
The light rail does not extend down to Friendswood. You can take a bus from there to the Medical Center area. You can use Metro's Trip Planner here to map out your trip with times etc.
Thanks for the question and I hope this helps!
Hello Veronica, My mother and brother came to visit me for the week. Do you know of any events this week that would be good for a family? Thank you, Paige
Veronica! We are arriving Sunday December 27 in Houston on a Princess Cruise Ship and our flight home does not depart until 5 pm that day. We are wondering if there are any tours we could take which would also take us to the airport by 3 pm at the latest? We will also have our luggage with us. There are four adults in our family. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
I highly recommend checking out our Cruise page which outlines transportation options. There are also plenty of tours in Houston, some of which do offer transport to the airport. Cool Tours offers rides if your cruising from Galveston. AFC Transportation also offers customizable tour options. I recommend finding some of the tours you're interested in and asking if they provide transportation options as they might be willing to do that on a case by case basis.
HI Veronica, I hope you are well. I want o take my mom out for her birthday. She will be 67, and I want to take her somewhere nice to remember. She does not go out at all, and will be 8/27. it will be in the evening that we will celebrate. Please provide some suggestions. Unique, spending under 250-300. The aquarium is played out, thought about it but she wont get on rides. Thank you.
There are a lot of great options. First, check out these itineraries so you can get some ideas based on her interests. If she likes museums I recommend spending a relaxing day checking out the Houston Museum of Fine Arts and the Menil Collection, then have a nice lunch at the Bistro Menil. Or catch a show in the Performing Arts district and grab dinner at one of these downtown hotspots. And if ultimate relaxation is the goal, enjoy a day of spa and pampering.
I hope that helps get you started and please let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi Veronica, We are flying into Houston tonight. Our lodging will be at 7777 Greenbriar. On the map, it shows metro lines crossing the property. We will be going to Texans game Saturday night. May I ask what is the best way to get to and return to NRG stadium for the game? Thank you for your help
Hi Veronica, or other Houston Visitor's Bureau Person, I will be visiting Houston (staying in Medical Center area) during the last week of October and would like to visit the NASA Space Center, National Museum of Funeral History in addition to various other sites. Generally I use public transit when travelling but noticed that the NASA Space Center and the Funeral Museum are a considerable distance from the Medical Center area (1.5 to 2 hours travel time by public transit) and was wondering if you had any suggestions other than taxi ($65 - $75 each direction) I was considering a tour to NASA but if I ordered the Houston City Pass then NASA is included and I don't think there is a shuttle service between Houston and NASA, But I could be wrong. Any suggestions you have would be appreciated. Stan
Regarding transportation, an alternative to the taxi is Uber. But, there is no public transportation to either NASA or the Funeral Museum. You could always rent a car as well, which might be the cheapest and easiest option.

Thank you for your response. I had not considering renting a car, but that would be a viable solution.
