A year ago, a report by TomTom confirmed that Houston is shouldered with some of the country’s worst traffic. Houston residents had to deal with the 11th worst commute in 2016, the worst among large metro areas in the South. If you are planning an upcoming road trip with multiple friends or family, why make everyone drive on their own to the destination and become frustrated with traffic? In this blog post, we will explain why a charter bus ride from Merlo’s is a much more enjoyable alternative.


Since 1999, Merlo’s Charters has provided the most dependable ground transportation in Houston. We are a family owned and operated business, so we know what it takes to earn the respect of our customers. When we first started out, we made it a point to maintain the highest safety standards and put customer satisfaction at the top of our list.

We’ve since grown to be one of the largest ground transportation companies in southeast Texas. Unlike so many other charter bus companies in the area, we own our own maintenance facility to ensure that passengers are always riding in the safest, most reliable vehicle on the road.


From standard event transportation to more luxury transportation, Merlo’s can be your answer for just about every occasion. We constantly provide corporate contract services, executive transportation, as well as options for more laid-back events such as nights outs on the town. Regardless of the occasion, Merlo’s will enhance your experience by making sure that our passengers are comfortable, safe, and on time.


Our charter bus drivers offer the most professional, chauffeured options at contract rates to corporations and businesses throughout Houston. We are also proud to service several of Houston’s airports. Merlo’s caters to flight crews arriving or departing Houston’s Bush Intercontinental or Hobby airports, transferring employees to a number of area hotels. Customers can count on us to effectively provide ground departures and arrivals to any point in Houston.

We don’t just specialize in airport transportation, though. We also work with some of the largest corporations in the oil and petrochemical industry to provide safe and reliable travel services. Is your organization in need of a shuttle ride service to keep transportation simple and efficient during a convention or tradeshow? Merlo’s offers airport meet and greet for convention-goers, as well as the ability to transfer any size group to a particular hotel.


Far too often on airport shuttles or other shuttle rides, passengers are cramped together and uncomfortable. Merlo’s Charters is changing the game when it comes to event transportation. For example, in the hot summer months, it can be challenge transferring patrons to churches on Sunday. However, with plenty of legroom and much-needed air-conditioning, our fleet of shuttles allows passengers to feel at ease and relaxed along the ride.  

At Merlo’s Charters, our customers are our first priority. If you don’t take our word for it, see below for what Katherine W. of the Houston Concierge Association had to say about Merlo’s:

“We want to thank you for and your transportation staff for always being there for our organization with professionalism, attention to detail and safety first.”
