Transportation from Austin Airport to San Marcos

Is there any reasonable priced transportation to take from Austin Airport to san Marcos? And vice versa??

I am trying to coordinate transportation and there doesn't seem to be much offered.....I am getting $100 one way for taxi or shuttle... seems excessive....

Anyone have any ideas? Renting a car is not an option --

You might contact your lodging in San Marcos for Ideas. They might be able to arrange something a little cheaper.

depending on your timing there is now a bus system in place. you would have to catch the www.capmetro.org bus int austin and then catch the www.ridecarts.com/service-to/san-marcos carts bus to san marcos. also there is a cheaper bob cat tram interurban that has less service at http://www.tram.txstate.edu/BTI.html .

This is the best we have so far. other than that there's the greyhound and the amtrac, but i never ride those.

Hi Ortizfan,

All the options offered in the other responses are great suggestions. One I would like to add is that Uber is available in Austin and San Marcos. I just ran a trip estimate and looks like right now at this moment it would run around $50 for a one way trip to San Marcos. Lyft is also available to San Marcos as well. For the most part we see many travelers using Super Shuttle to get to our City. I hope this helps and thank you for visiting San Marcos. If there is anything you need please feel free to give us a call at (512) 393-5930 or you may visit our website www.toursanmarcos.com

Thank you,
