Transportation Resources in Katy
When you live in a large metropolitan area like Katy is a part of, you absolutely need to be able to travel and move about as efficiently as possible. You can ask any resident of Katy and he or she is likely to share their favorite route to several important places in town if you ask. Take their word for it! On top of that, here is some more information for you about how to get around Katy, southeast Texas and the State of Texas as a whole that you can familiarize yourself with.
The Katy Freeway is named as such because Katy is direct adjacent to Interstate 10 just west of Houston as you enter town. The stretch of I-10 between Katy and Houston is known as the Katy Freeway. In that way, living in Katy is great because you don’t have to travel a bunch of different roads to get home from work, play or any other activities in Houston. Just jump on the Katy Freeway and head home. There are car-pool lanes for multiple travelers and toll options for those of you who plan to purchase an EZ-TAG or TX-TAG.
The Grand Parkway has turned suburban living into a convenience rather than an inconvenience. This Parkway is a nearly completed loops that connects Ft. Bend County, Harris County and Montgomery County in addition to four other counties in our area. Most of the Parkway is tolled so it is important to have a toll tag. However, there is no more convenient way to travel on the outer edges of the Houston-metro area than using the Grand Parkway.
Finally, Katy is just about directly in between the two major airports of southeast Texas: George Bush Intercontinental Airport and Hobby Airport. “Bush Airport” as it is known to locals is in north Houston and can be reached by using Beltway 8/The Sam Houston Tollway. Hobby Airport is a mainly domestic airport that is on the southeast side of Houston.
