About this app

METRO is the Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County, serving the Greater Houston, Texas region with safe, clean, reliable, accessible and friendly public transportation services.

The ONE to Ride regional transit app is a personalized navigation tool that allows you to plan and manage your trip on Local bus, Park & Ride bus, METRORail or METRORapid. It requires a cellular network or wireless connection.

By allowing the Houston METRO Trip Planner (ONE to Ride) app to access your location, you’ll see:
• Nearby bus, rail and METRORapid routes
• Real-time arrival estimates for nearby buses and METRORapid vehicles
• Scheduled arrival times for nearby trains

You can plan your trip by tapping an icon in the upper right corner of the screen.

The app’s unique My Stop technology then connects with thousands of beacons in the METRO service area to deliver notifications or pulse vibrations when you’re approaching your:
• Starting bus stop, METRORail or METRORapid platform
• Transfer point (if applicable)
• Destination bus stop, METRORail or METRORapid platform

Just plan your trip and watch or listen to your phone to monitor progress.

For further assistance, please contact METRO Customer Service at 713-635-4000 or visit our website at

Dangerously misleading in a crisis. Though useful under normal circumstances the app doesn't do a good job of notifying when the metro shuts down (such as due to weather). It keeps calculating arrivals as if the buses were still running. This can string the user along with false hope of evacuation until your phone dies, the hotels are full, and you're facing the prospect of a night on the streets.

This is a dope app because based on location, you are provided several bus route options based on whether you want to have a shorter walking distance, shorter travel time and/or least transfers used. The app auto-populates as you progress throughout your journey. Metro is a fool for that...Wow, I honestly expected a redundant app from ya'll, however I'm eating my words. Metro for the longest had thrived on inefficient, menial, and boring activity. In 2021, times sure have changed for Metro.🥴

App riddled with bugs. Constantly having to restart the app in order to get it to function. I question the real time tracking as countless times the bus comes 10 minutes earlier or 25 minutes later than the "real time" specifies. Despite these flaws, it is still helpful if you're new to Houston or unfamiliar with bus times in your area.
