• Getting Around in San Antonio

    San Antonio’s central location makes it a convenient destination from both the East and West Coasts, and a newly renovated international airport only 8 miles from downtown makes access even easier. Once you've arrived, the city offers multiple transportation options for getting to the venue and exploring the city.

    Getting To and From the Airport

    Airport Shuttle: Shuttle transportation to and from San Antonio International Airport and downtown (8 miles) is provided for a fee by SATRANS, the city's official airport shuttle, between 7:00 a.m. and 1:30 a.m. daily. Shuttle tickets are sold at the baggage claim area, at Terminal A and Terminal B. For more information, call 210-281-9900, or visit www.saairportshuttle.com

    Taxis: The San Antonio International Airport is only about 8 miles from downtown San Antonio, or about a 15-minute taxi ride. Two to six people ride for the price of one. Average fare is $22 before gratuity.

    Getting Around Downtown

    Downtown travel is a breeze on open-air streetcars that are authentic reproductions of those that traveled the streets of San Antonio more than 50 years ago. Four streetcar routes stop at top attractions like the Alamo, Spanish Governor's Palace, La Villita and the King William Historic District. The downtown streetcar station at Convention Plaza provides convenient access for travelers.

    Rio San Antonio Cruises offers river taxi service stopping at approximately 40 spots along the River Walk for a unique way to get from place to place. Drivers have tickets on board or you may purchase them at any ticket location.

    The Sightseer Special (Bus 7) runs daily among the city's favorite sites. Locations include Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, the Alamo, San Antonio Museum of Art, Japanese Tea Garden, Brackenridge Park, Trinity University, University of the Incarnate Word, Witte Museum, San Antonio Botanical Garden, River Walk Streetcar Station and San Antonio Zoo – and you can see them all for one price.
