Car Rental Houston Airport George Bush

George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston has been called one of the fastest growing airports in the United States. With an average of 700 or more daily departures, there is a very good chance that you will pass through this airport if your travels take you through the Houston area. While you can get around using the TerminaLink connection train between the International Arrivals Building and Terminals A through E and avoid going through repetitive long security lines or the inter-terminal underground train, but this will not help you once you leave the airport.


Buses

There used to be bus service available via Houston's Metropolitan Transit Authority, which provided service to several stops around downtown Houston. While this was a useful means and for a time cost effective method of leaving the airport, it has been discontinued for years except in special cases. For the most part, your transportation is limited to hailing a taxi or renting a car.


Renting Cars

Generally a more convenient and cost effective way to get around than taking a taxi, renting a car at George Bush allows you to simply return the vehicle immediately prior to your departure. There are numerous rental car companies represented at George Bush and concessions are available at Cafe on the Way near the car rental desk.
