Spring, Texas got its name after one particularly cold winter, when the coming of warmer days and the sunshine of springtime meant that a handful of brave ranchers and miners were going to survive after all. Spring, they rejoiced, and the city was named. Though it's within the jurisdiction of Houston, this community has a character all its own and is the perfect place to experience the charm and hospitality of the Wild West.
Since it doesn't have a city government, relying instead on nearby Houston and Harris County for all its public needs, Spring doesn't have a public transportation system of its own. There are some county busses that service the area, but they don't go everywhere in Spring. The best way to get around in this town is to have a reliable car of your own. Texas is a big state and most people find themselves covering many miles each day.
