AIRPORT

Austin Bergstrom International Airport, 22 miles from the venue

Rush hour travel: If you are traveling to or from the airport during rush hour, or if you have a tight timeline for making your flight home, consider taking State Highway 130 as an alternative to I-35. Highway 130 is a toll road and is a longer route (in miles) between the airport and the venue, but traffic levels are considerably lighter than on I-35. At rush hour the I-35 route can increase your drive time by 30 minutes or more over the 130 option. Check with your car rental agency before deciding on your route, to see if they impose any surcharges for toll road travel, which is charged electronically to the vehicle (i.e., no need to stop to pay at a toll booth, just drive on through). The 1-35 route is fine during non-rush-hour travel.
