Getting There
Houston. Here we come. 
 
Navigating Houston is a cinch. With an airport system that services over 180 cities worldwide, Houston boasts a diverse range of transportation options. Find out what options suit your needs best:
 
GreenLink: Greenlink operates seven, free busses from 6:30am to 6:30pm Monday through Friday at 7-10 minute intervals. Since they run on compressed natural gas, GreenLink busses are a cleaner transportation alternative than traditional busses or cars. You can find out more about the GreenLink bus route here: Houston City Map (PDF).
 
Houston B-Cycle: Want an even cleaner alternative for transportation? Join Houston B-Cycle, Houston’s premiere bike-sharing program: $5 gets you a one-day membership, while a weekly one only costs you $15! If you don’t want to sign up online, you can purchase your membership at any of the downtown stations. Note that all memberships start at the time of your first bike ride, but you can save on usage charges by limiting your rides to 90 minutes or less.
 
Six in the City Cab Fare: If you need a cheap and quick ride downtown, Houston has just the offer for you. You can catch a cab for only $6 anywhere in the Downtown District (bounded by I-45, I-10 and U.S. 59). This promotion is cash only, so make sure you’re prepared with cash on hand. To take advantage of this offer, you can flag down a cab from the street, find one of the many downtown cab stands, or call any of the cab companies listed below:
Fiesta Cab Company: 713-225-2666
Liberty Cab Company: 713-695-6700
Square Deal Cab Company: 713-659-7236
Yellow Cab Company: 713-236-1111

WPC Shuttles: WPC attendees can also take advantage of the shuttles that will travel between the conference center, hotels and other key event locations. Review the WPC Shuttle Transportation Schedule (PDF) to avail yourself of this opportunity.
 
GroundLink: Still worried about transportation options? Well, there’s no need to stress. With GroundLink, you can book all of your transportation needs in advance or on the spot, ensuring that your WPC experience runs as smoothly and easily as possible.
