Want to see Houston like a local? Catch The Wave, Houston’s jitney shuttle service. If you’re wondering what a jitney is, it is a “fixed rate, fixed route, circulator with seating for more than 9 & less than 15 passengers”. We are a hybrid between a taxi, a limo, and a public bus. A taxi b/c we can do some door to door service and you can call to get a pick-up. A limo b/c our vehicles have upgraded stereo, televisions, lights, seating, and other luxuries. A public bus b/c anyone can get on board. We are a social transportation company, bringing the people to the community and the community to the people. We also offer private rental service with event coordinating services as requested. Our team of drivers, dispatchers, and event planners know what is going on in this great city and can help you plan your visit. We have lists of businesses, must see spots, restaurants, game calendars, shows, museums, festivals, etc. on board to assure you know how to experience a little of everything. Each year, The Wave provides transportation to thousands of Houstonians and her visitors; shuttling for large city-wide events, nights out in Inner Loop Houston and private events such as birthday parties, company dinners, progressive dinners, nights at the theater, a day at the museums, and much more. The Wave is the financially, environmentally, and socially responsible way to get around Houston. We enjoy being part of your success stories no matter how small or large the event or party.

If you want to do short trips around town, this can be a fun experience if hanging out with a group of people. However, we just wanted to go on a short trip down the road and thought the cost was a little high.More
