I'm travelling to Houston Intercontinental Airport (George Bush) soon, and will be travelling from there to the Downtown Greyhound station in order to travel to Shreveport... and it seems my cheapest option so far is the airport direct service but it's more than I was expecting (I was basing my idea of the price on the prices of buses in cities in the U.K. and assuming that the price would be cheaper in the U.S.A.) - it's $15 one-way.



Is there a less direct service that I can get more cheaply? Like a metro bus from somewhere nearby the aiport that arrives somewhere nearby the Greyhound station rather than going direct?

Well, yeah, probably. If you don't mind making a few transfers, Metro will probably get you there for less than $5.



Houston Metro You do have to pay a bit extra for transfers (not sure how much it is now, since I haven't ridden the bus in awhile), but I suspect $5 total is a bit on the conservative side. Just find out where the bus system meets the Metrorail; that stops right by the main Greyhound terminal.
