Houston Cinema Arts Festival 2013, a walkable festival, centers on venues in downtown Houston and the Museum District within easy access of the METRORail Red Line and B-Cycle stations.
METRORail offers a fast, safe, and convenient way to travel. The 7.5 mile light rail Red Line takes passengers across Downtown via Main Street. The line also connects Downtown to other major Houston destinations such as Midtown, the Museum District, the Texas Medical Center, Reliant Center, and the South Fannin Park & Ride lot. Multiple bus lines can also take you to all our festival venues. A round-trip ticket is only $2.50 for adults and $1.20 for students/seniors. Single day passes with unlimited rides are available for $3.00. Tickets can be purchased from any ticket vending machine, located on each rail platform or when boarding a bus.
The new METRO Day Pass offers unlimited local bus and light-rail service until 2 a.m. the next day – just $3.00 a day for adults and $1.50 for students, seniors and disabled riders. METRORail tickets can be purchased from METRO ticket vending machines, located on every rail platform. The new DAY PASS is available at select retailers and at the METRO RideStore located at 1900 Main Street. For more information, visit www.RideMETRO.org or call 713.635.4000 for details.
Houston B-cycle is a “bike sharing” program that works as an additional transportation alternative for people living and visiting Houston. Membership to the system can be purchased online or at any kiosk. Rides under 60 min incur no usage fee. Add $2 for each additional ½ hour. Look up all the details at www.houston.bcycle.com
The official Houston Visitors website also has a great resource for exploring the city via METRORail. This website also provides extensive resources on additional modes of travel, including the free downtown Greenlink bus, B-Cycle bike share, and the $6 flat rate cab fare anywhere downtown.
