BUS/METRO RAIL
METRORail is a fast, convenient way to travel to downtown, midtown, the Museum District, Texas Medical Center, Moody Park and up to the Northline Transit Center / HCC .  Customers can carry a pet on the bus and the rail as long as it is caged properly. Service animals are allowed to accompany riders with disabilities.  Bus and rail riders may bring car seats aboard, but there are no seat belts to strap the car seat to the bus or rail seat. So the caregiver would have to hold the baby or child. Strollers are also allowed. On buses, we suggest removing the child from the stroller and folding the stroller while on-board.
