Austin is one of the biggest cities in Texas making it easy for you to navigate around the city via a variety of travel options. While our vacation rentals are just minutes away from most of the exciting attractions found around town, you will still need to know the best way of getting around Austin TX. Here is an Austin travel guide that you’ll definitely benefit from when exploring this amazing place:
Get Around by Car
Grabbing a car rental is always the easiest way of getting around Austin TX. While this might be the easiest option, it is also the most expensive. You can find the majority of major car rental companies right in town and also at the Bergstrom International Airport. Car rentals also let you book ahead so you know what to expect before you arrive.
Get Around by Ride Share
One of the more popular options these days of getting around Austin is ride-sharing. Companies such as Lyft and Uber make it easy to call a ride and get to anywhere you need. After an initial dispute that had both Lyft and Uber leave Austin, they are now back and ready to serve you. Ridesharing can add up during your trip, though. If you plan on calling at least 10 rides, you might be better off just renting a car.
Get Around by Ryde for Getting Around Austin TX
Another way of getting around Austin TX is a rideshare option that is exclusive to Austin called Ryde. With Ryde, you can request open-air electric vehicles for up to five passengers. The ride is only $5 and takes you anywhere within the service area. Popular areas covered include downtown, 28th Street, and Airport Boulevard. You will not have to worry about increased times during rush hour with Ryde.
Get Around by Bicycles/Scooters
Austin is also the home of many alternative options for getting around that do not require a car. Thousands of rental bicycles and scooters can be found around the city, especially downtown. These options can be rented by the minute and right from your phone. Be careful with the Lime Scooters, as they can go 18 miles per hour!
