Getting around in Austin

For those of you visiting from out of town, here's a couple of tips for getting around.

First, we don't have great public transportation in Austin. The cool areas of town are pretty spread out, and you need a car to get to a lot of places. We do have a decent bus system, but no subway/train system.

On the plus side, we are an early adopter of the cool new Google Transit map system. Click there and Google will develop a bus route for where you want to go complete with schedules. You can also download a PDF of the bus schedules at the Capitol Metro Website.

Now for more bad news - the buses stop before the end of the midnight movie, so if you are a bus rider, you'll need to get a cab. You can ask one of our staffers to call one for you, we recommend:

American Yellow Checker Cab Co (512) 452-9999
