Houston is home to a lot of great restaurants, parks, wildlife, and performing arts centers (and lately some pretty bad baseball). It’s also easily accessible for those visitors who have a little trouble getting around on their own. Below is a brief guide to help folks with disabilities make their way around H-Town.
Bus – All Metro buses are wheelchair accessible and equipped with either ramps or lift systems. The Metro also provides announcements at all major stops and transfer points in audible and visual form for riders with vision or hearing impairments.
Train – The Metro Rail is also wheelchair accessible and provides level boarding for convenience.
Tourist Attractions – Minute Maid Park, home of the Astros, offers one-hour wheelchair accessible tours of many areas inside the park not normally seen by fans. Additionally, most public areas including the galleries, sculpture garden and theater at the Museum of Fine Arts are wheelchair accessible and elevators are available throughout the building. The Houston Museum of Natural Science, Houston Zoo, Houston Rodeo, and Children’s Museum of Houston are also wheelchair-friendly.
