Travel from Riverwalk to Lackland AFB for Graduation

We are planning on staying at the San Antonia Marriott Rivercenter while in SA for our son's AF graduation. What would be the best and most economical means of travel to the base and back? We were under the impression he would have the weekend free, so we only thought we would need a car for 1-2 days but after reading the reviews, it looks like he will have to be back on base nightly. A taxi twice a day seems pricey but so does the $25-33/day parking at the hotel in addition to car rental. Are there any other forms of travel to the base that might be more economical? If not, what would be a more economical place to park in close proximity to the hotel?

On SAT. there is a shuttle to/from Lackland..looking at the sched. the first bus leaves downtown at 9:32a.m. (from the USO) and arrives at the Lackland visitor center at 10am. (I am guessing you probably need to be on base before 10am.) (approx every 25 mins)

the last bus from Lackland to downtown is 9:50.pm and arrives downtown at 10:12pm

It might save you the cost of at least 1 or 2 taxi rides

you can look here.

tejashombre has given you good info but I think you would better off renting a car & parking in a public lot if you don't want to pay hotel parking.

Here is a website you can find public parking click on Plan then maps !
