Getting Around Austin


In the city, taxis can be hailed on the street throughout the downtown region or found at hotel taxi stands. Taxis are also readily available outside the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport's baggage claim area on the ground floor. Visitors should expect to pay about $25-30 in taxi fare from the airport to downtown Austin.



Car2go is another transportation rental option. Users pay a one-time membership fee and have access to 350 vehicles around town ranging between $0.41- $0.47 per minute. Reserve a car ahead of time using the mobile app, or pick one up spontaneously at dozens of convenient locations all over Austin, then just drop it off at the nearest Car2Go parking spot when you’re finished.



Austin is home to several pedicab companies. These bike chauffeurs can be seen cycling all over downtown, transporting visitors and locals alike to their next destinations. Most drivers work for tips only.


Bike Rentals

With dozens of bike shops, rental companies and tour facilities to choose from, both Austinites and visitors can get from point A to B while staying fit at the same time. The Austin B-Cycle Program set a North American bikeshare record during SXSW 2014, with 2,158 total checkouts and 7.8 checkouts per bike. Please see our bike rental listings for more information and availabilities:



The Chariot is a San Francisco-based company that is revitalizing public transportation for businesses, tourists, and commuters by providing affordable charter services. For $7 per person (which includes 2 rides), you can enjoy a comfortable journey through the city. Relatively new to Austin, the Chariot is also offering a new shuttle service between West Sixth Street and Rainey Street that is to take place during the month of February. This fourteen-passenger shuttle is expected to run every 30 minutes between 10:00 pm and 1:00 am for only $3.50 per person.
