Ground Transportation

Austin's bus system is run by [ Capital Metro] which has a number of bus routes that service the UT campus.

To and From the Airport

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

If you will be staying at the Doubletree Suites, you can take the Airport Flyer to 18th St and Congress Ave, walk south on Congress (toward the State Capitol) to 15th St, make a right, and walk two blocks west to Lavaca St to the hotel. Otherwise, if your hotel is centrally located, my suggestion would be to use the Airport Flyer. A cab or shared-ride van is probably your best option if your hotel is not along the Airport Flyer route. It takes about 20-30 minutes to reach central Austin from the airport (depending on traffic).
