I know this seems to be a driving city, but there is an option, for not just people that don't have their own vehicle. If you are worried about how you will feel after the shot, and you don't have anyone to take you and pick you up this is a great option. The best part about it is that not only will they take you there, it doesn't cost anything for them to do that.

The Brazos Transit District is a general public transportation provider. They run the fixed routes mention earlier, and ADA Paratransit Service, and Demand and Response. This program would fall under the Demand and Response. If you live far outside of town, or at least 3/4 of a mile away from a fixed route, this is the answer.
