Car & Motorcycle

Scheduled buses run by Galveston Limousine Service travel to and from both Houston Hobby Airport (round-trip/one-way $80/45, one hour) and Houston Intercontinental Airport (round-trip/one-way $100/55, two hours) six times or more each day. Advance reservations are required, with discounts available online.


Paid parking is enforced along the length of Seawall Blvd and much of downtown from 10am to 6pm. While visitors to downtown can use cash meters (or a number of private lots), parking along the Seawall can only be paid on the PayByPhone website or mobile app or by calling 866-234-7275.


Island Transit operates buses from the central transfer stop at 25th and Strand. Exact hours differ by route, but run roughly from 7am to 7pm Monday to Saturday and 9am to 7pm Sunday (tickets adult/child $1/50¢). The routes are mostly designed for carless residents in the neighborhoods.

From the Strand, Route 6 reaches the Seawall and a transfer stop for Route 7 and the Moody Gardens area. Route 4 runs through East End to Stewart Beach Park then back along Broadway Ave.
