HOUSTON -- We won't be winning in the traffic department when it comes to the Final Four.

With over 70,000 basketball fans flocking to Houston for the Final Four that means extra cars and extra long drive times.

There are three zones of major traffic. The hotels near Uptown and the Galleria area. The GRB and Discovery Green which is where Fan Fest is being held. And around NRG Park where the actual games are being played.

To avoid the "madness" you may want to ditch the car.  Metro is offering "Final Four passes".  For $12  you can ride the rail or local buses all weekend.
