There are several options for transfers to and from Austin’s Bergstrom Airport:
- SAA has arranged a discount for attendees with SuperShuttle, an economical, shared van service. SAA has a special web portal for attendees to make reservations. You must make reservations online in order to get SAA’s discounted rate.
http://groups.supershuttle.com/societyforamericanarchaeology79thmeeting.html (The live link is on SAA web under “Airport Transfers”). Either use this SAA direct link and click “Book Online” in the upper left-hand corner to have the discount code added automatically, or you may book through www.SuperShuttle.com, in which case you would need to add the discount code “SAA14” to your reservation. You may also call at 1-800-258-3826 or 1-800-410-4444, but the discount is not available with phone reservations.
- The least expensive option from the airport is by city bus. The city of Austin’s Capital Metro provides the “100 Airport Flyer”, an express bus from the airport to downtown. The bus picks up on the lower level of the airport near baggage claim. Tickets are purchased on the bus, and airport staff should be available to direct you. There are stops at 4th and Trinity that service the Hilton Austin, 2nd and Congress for the Radisson, as well as a stop at 12th and Trinity for La Quinta. One way tickets are $1 one-way from the airport to any of these stops, and 24-hour passes are $2.Visit www.capmetro.org/airport/ for more information, or call 512-474-1200.
- Of course, taxis are also available.
