Buses and the Train (Light Rail)metro rail

Public transportation is available in Houston through the Metropolitan Transit Authority.  Buses serve 66% of Harris County including Houston and the NASA/Clear Lake area.  The Light Rail train, which stops at the front door of the university, costs the same amount as a bus and accepts the same tickets, passes and transfers as buses, students buying a "Q card" get a discount. Maps and schedules are available at the Cashier's office or at the METRO web site.  (Taxi service is available but is somewhat expensive.)


Because Houston is spread out over a large land mass, many people drive automobiles in Houston. Some students purchase automobiles. State law requires that automobile owners purchase adequate automobile insurance policies. All drivers must obtain a driver's license. This requires both a written and a driving test. Many ELI students drive cars.
