Getting Around in Sugar Land, TX

A car is a must in Sugar Land as this city doesn’t have access to public transportation. Though much of the Houston Metropolitan area is serviced by METRO busses and rail lines, Sugar Land has voted to keep taxes lower by excluding itself from the METRO system. There is talk of extending the METRORail into Sugar Land, though nothing has been planned. As a large city, walking and cycling aren’t viable options for getting all the way across town, though the downtown area has been designed with pedestrians in mind, and many of the planned communities make it easy to walk around the neighborhood.
