GETTING HERE TO THERE
Once they arrive into Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, there are plenty of ways to get your attendees around Austin with ease. No matter what kind of event you're planning, from black-tie soirees to adventurous outdoor gatherings, one of these transportation options is sure to suit your style.
For a posh party, give attendees the red-carpet treatment with limousine or private sedan transportation to or from the event. Many companies offer stretch limos, town cars, stretch Hummers and more. For an extra touch of class, try a vintage car service like Antique Limousines of Austin to give your attendees an unforgettable ride in head-turning style.
For staple transportation options around Austin, you can't go wrong with Capital Metro, Austin's public transportation system, which operates more than 80 bus routes around town as well as commuter MetroRail routes from nine stations throughout the city. The MetroAirport bus offers $1.50 direct service to downtown Austin in 30 minutes or less every 30 minutes on the hour and half hour. For convenient downtown transportation, plan on using one of Austin's taxicab companies, or book a charter bus for larger groups.
If your event is for a fun loving, adventurous crew, you may want to opt for something a little more unconventional. With Austin's latticework of bike paths and a prevalent cycling culture, a bike rental is an exciting option for getting around while seeing the sights. Some companies, like Barton Springs Bike Rental, even offer children's bikes and trailers, perfect for attendees with families in tow. A popular alternative around downtown is a pedicab ride, so guests can relax in an open-air cart while being pulled by a cyclist. Another option? Plan a walking tour of downtown, so attendees can travel to or from their event on-foot while learning about the history and architecture of the city.
