Getting Around Austin
"Drive friendly" is one of our state mottos, and Austin is no exception. Getting to and from the airport - and all around town - is easy. Most major rental car companies are available at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, and other standard transportation options include:
Capital Metro Bus Line
Austin's public bus system is part of a 500 square-mile Central Texas system of more than 3,000 bus stops and 53 routes. Austin is serviced by multiple local bus routes, limited stop/flyer routes, express routes, and University of Texas shuttle routes. Download the CapMetro App for comprehensive maps and details.
Connecting Austin on a 32-mile line that stretches all the way from the city of Leander to downtown Austin next to the Convention Center, MetroRail provides $1-$2.75 trips with nine in between. Services run six days a week until around 7, and until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.

Rent a Bike
On-the-go bike rentals from Austin B-cycle are available to use at more than 40 stations located throughout the city. Also available are a number bike shops that offer hourly and daily rentals. Maps and bike routes can be found here.
