CapMetro runs convenient & frequent bus services to and from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. Passengers traveling to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport can take Capital Metro’s high-frequency Route 20.

Route 20 Manor Road/Riverside starts at the airport, operating every 15 minutes, 7 days a week as part of the High-Frequency Network. It then heads down Riverside Drive before zipping into downtown and serving the University of Texas campus. It travels on Manor Road near the Mueller neighborhood before turning toward Northeast Austin, where it reaches its destination on Manor near U.S. 183.

Along the way, the Route 20 provides easy transfers to a number of other High-Frequency routes that can carry you throughout Austin.

All routes in the High-Frequency Network require a Local fare of $1.25 for a single ride, though if you are going to transfer from route to route, a $2.50 Day Pass will cover you for the next 24 hours. (If you want to ride MetroRail, you’ll need a Commuter fare.) Passes can purchased via the CapMetro App or on board the vehicle.
