Rely on the leading Houston Auto transport company on the road.
Houston, also known as H-Town among its locals, is a beautiful place to live. With its vast educational opportunities, numerous museums, countless outdoor recreation options, we can’t blame you for thinking about moving here. There is, however, one thing you need to know about Houston before you start packing your moving boxes. Getting around the city can be tricky. For this reason, we at USA Auto Transport have compiled a short guide to figuring out Houston’s traffic.
How Do I Get Around Houston?
Public transportation in Houston is provided by the Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County, also known as METRO. It is a fairly new service provider that only started operating in 2001. That being said, it is still in the process of being developed. It is not exactly the go-to means of commuting in Houston. Other public and private transportation options in Houston include:- Cycling – Houston is home to over 160 miles of bike tracks. It also has the highest number of bike commuters in the state.- Car Sharing Companies – due to public transportation system’s poor condition, companies such as Uber and Lyft are gaining momentum here.- Taxi service – while not the most popular means of transportation, taxis are an option as well.
Why Do I Need A Car In Houston?
If you didn’t gather it from the previous paragraph, public transport in Houston is borderline non-existent. This means that hiring a reliable auto transport company to help you relocate your car to Houston would be the smartest course of action. Aside from providing you with way shorter commutes, your car will also protect you from Houston’s ruthless climate.
Getting around Houston is not only time-efficient, but it is less confusing as well. Houston is home to almost 740 miles of freeways and expressways. Some of the most commonly used ones are:
– Interstate 610, which circles around downtown and other core neighborhoods,
– Beltway 8, which forms the middle loop of Houston’s hub-and-spoke system, and
– State Highway 99, the third loop, about 180 miles long.
