Transportation Options

As a Guest at Hospitality Apartments, you have four transportation options:

  1. Your Own Car
  2. Houston Taxi Service
  3. MD Anderson Shuttle
  4. Walk

If you bring your own car, we will provide a car pass that will allow you to park in one of the two apartment parking lots. Houston has a good taxi service, but the companies are not always on time.  The Texas Medical Center is about seven blocks north of the apartments and walking is an option if you feel up to it and the outside temperature and weather allow.

Since a majority of our Guests are out-Patients at MD Anderson Cancer Center (MDA), the MD Anderson Shuttle provides transportation to and from various MD Anderson Hospital locations for MDA Patients.   Currently the MDA Shuttle comes to Hospitality Apartments about once every 30 minutes.  Shuttles that come to and from Hospitality Apartments are labeled with a purple tag, as shown below, which also shows Hospitality Apartments as one of its stops.  The MDA Shuttle picks up Hospitality Apartments Guests and their Caregivers in the driveway outside the front entrance to Hospitality Apartments.  Be sure to look for the MDA Shuttle with the appropriate purple tag.
