GROUND TRANSPORTATION, PARKING AND AIRPORT
Most major airlines serve Austin Bergstrom International Airport. The airport is located 10 miles southeast of the Texas Swim Center. Car rental is available at the airport. Discounted airport shuttle service to hotels can be arranged in advance through SuperShuttle. The group discount code is VWYSS and is available only through the coupon at the meet host website.
The University of Texas will be in session during the meet. However, parking on campus will be available in three parking garages within 0.25 of a mile of the Texas Swim Center. A four-day card (which allows unlimited in and out privileges) is $30, three-day cards are $22, two-day cards are $16 and a one-day card is $9. Without these cards, parking will be $10 each time you park in a garage. Limited free parking on surface lots may be available on Saturday and Sunday. Consult the Swim Center's website for maps to available parking.
