 * Capital Metro has a bus (the Airport Flyer, Route 100) that runs between the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (ABIA) and central Austin. Its schedule can be found [http://www.capmetro.org/riding/schedules.asp?f1=100 here]. It doesn't have many stops, but they are all centrally located and intersect other bus routes.

This may be due to their knowledge of the bus system and knowing what bus to take get home.

To and From the Airport

There are a couple of options to get to and from the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (ABIA).

  • Capital Metro has a bus (the Airport Flyer, Route 100) that runs between ABIA and central Austin. Its schedule can be found [http://www.capmetro.org/riding/schedules.asp?f1=100 here]. It doesn't have many stops, but they are all centrally located and intersect other bus routes. Many UT graduate students use the Airport Flyer and find that it is a very inexpensive and easy way to travel ($1 for a 24-hour pass). This may be due to their knowledge of the bus system and knowing what bus to take get home.

  • There are also plenty of cabs and shared-ride vans as well.

My suggestion would be to use the Airport Flyer if your hotel is centrally located. Otherwise a cab or shared-ride van is probably your best option.
