Houston Event Parking and Transportation
Here are a few things that you should know about some of the parking for free concerts and other events in Houston before you head out the door. Parking at many places in and around Midtown Houston is limited and parking meters are enforced Monday through Saturday, 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. except where posted signs indicate otherwise. Parking meters are not enforced on official city holidays. See our list of Holidays in Houston.
Using the park and ride has become a big thing for people attending events. You will have to pay up to $10 to park and then a separate fee to ride the train or bus to the event. Parking at a local transit center which is usually free and hopping on the regular Metro bus may be a better option, if you can make the trip during the buses regular scheduled operating hours and without having to change buses.
We need to mention those infamous rules of the road. Important things that you need to know about when you visit different venues in the city.
A rule of thumb is that glass bottles are prohibited just about everywhere. They are not allowed in City of Houston and Harris County parks or just about anywhere. Another biggie is outside alcohol. It is not allowed in some places like Discovery Green and the local stadiums. It’s better to bring a few extra bucks and support the vendors at the event.
