On the Serengeti, the rhinoceros provides a form of public transportation for grassland birds, who ride standing on its broad back and often hitch their bicycles to its frontal horn. Take a more modern mode of mass transit and turn it into a party with today’s Groupon: for $10, you receive two nights of unlimited rides on the Houston Wave (a $20 value). The Houston Wave operates Thursday through Saturday from 6 p.m. to 3 a.m. and Sundays and Mondays from 4 p.m. to 12 a.m. Riders can flag down shuttles anywhere along the Washington Corridor. For riders outside of the fixed route, free parking is available at the corner of Houston Ave. and Memorial Ave.
The Houston Wave is a jitney service, a cross between a taxi and a bus that operates along a fixed route, shuttling revelers around Houston hot-spots such as the Washington Corridor, Midtown, and the Heights. Labeled "a welcome addition to the city's expanding party corridor" by the New York Times, the Wave provides a fun, safe, and eco-friendly way to carouse around the city's nightlife without having to hunt down parking or hold spelling bees to choose a designated driver. Each shuttle keeps its riders’ minds off the traffic with a disco ball and dancing pole. A nightly wristband will also treat you to a ton of discounts and deals at select businesses along the Wave route, so toast your bachelorette party with $1 off domestic pints at Kobain and Taps, or get everyone together for dinner with 15% off at Candelari’s Pizza. The Wave’s highly trained drivers will make sure that you safely reach each new destination while the night is still overflowing with darkness. Buy today’s Groupon for the Houston Wave and add a mobile party element to your next girl’s night out, birthday bash, monster mash, or best parent-teacher conference ever.
This Groupon may be redeemed on any of the buses during pick-up hours.
