I'll be spending a couple days in downtown Houston, and would not miss a trip to Johnson Space Center for the world. However, it is quite far outside the city, and I was wondering what are the public transport options to Johnson Space Center from Houston Downtown.

  • Do you have a driving license, could you rent a car?

  • I just reached out to Avis in Houston, and it seems like a French driver's licence and a credit card is all you need. I'd say yes then!

  • Hi and welcome. I tried to reformulate the question to render it less opinion-based. A question asking for the "best" is unfortunately unanswerable since we all have different opinions on what "best" means.

Assuming you mean Space Center Houston, the Johnson Space Center visitor complex, you can talk Metro Bus 246 or 249 from downtown directly to Space Center Houston.

Schedules here: Bus Schedules

  • Route 249 also offers service to Johnson Space Center. (In fact, given their respective schedules, a tourist coming from downtown would almost certainly take Route 249 to the Space Center.) Note also that neither route operates on Saturdays or Sundays. Apr 21, 2017 at 14:29
  • Thanks a lot. It is taking a while, but the bus fare is so low, I think it is a very good option.
