I ride metro all the time. Its very cheap and convenient. Its a whole lot better than it used to be. Having a Q CARD is the only way to go...unless you want to pay for every bus or train transfer. YOU CAN GET THEM AT THE METRO STORE at the DownTownTransitCenter. Or at most convenient stores in the Houston/ Metro Area and Downtown. The busses a trains are nice and clean. The air conditioning is always cold. Its a Comfy Ride......"ALL ABOARD !!!!!!"

App completely stops working... freezes when putting in stops or addresses. Key word searches on street names or place names too limited. If you don't spell street or highway name exactly the way the app has it entered in their search criteria, you won't receive any results. Very poorly designed and executed app.
