Getting Around Houston

Every 7-10 minutes, the Greenlink Green and Orange Routes connect locals and visitors throughout Downtown. The Green route spans 2.5-miles with 18 stops and connects major office buildings along Smith and Louisiana streets to METRO transit, the convention corridor, hotels, restaurants, shopping and entertainment. From inside the GRB South Transit Center you can reach many popular downtown destinations, including  Main Street Square, Discovery Green, GreenStreet, Phoenicia Specialty Foods, City Hall and the Central Library. 

The free buses run on Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), making them a cleaner transportation alternative. Features of the buses include a streamlined, modern design, low-floor access, perimeter seating, high-quality air conditioning, 28-seat capacity and are ADA compliant.

Greenlink is operated by METRO through an interlocal agreement with the Downtown District and Houston First.
