Transportation: Texas Southern University is located in the heart of Houston's downtown area and, as result, has multiple transportation options. The typical mode of transportation is riding with friends who have cars. However, if your friends don't have cars, you could always take the Metro (bus) or call a taxi. TSU also sponsors buses that occasionally make grocery store runs or movie outings.

Transportation: Houston does have the metro transportation system, it does have stops on campus. Most students drive their own cars because Metro is unreliable. The school doesn't have shuttles. Metro is building light rail about a block from our campus and right across the street from the UH campus. But if would really help if you have your own car.

1 College Freshman

Transportation: The campus shuttle runs whenever it wants to its not really a dependable transportation route.
