NEW Airport Arrival Info

IMPORTANT! In November 2018 the pick-up location for taxis, ride app cars and off-site rental car drop off services at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport will operate from the ground level of the Rental Car Facility. The relocation of the taxi and ride app pick-up area will reduce airport roadway congestion by approximately 3,700 cars per day at the entries of the Barbara Jordan Terminal.

You will reach pick-up area after crossing the road.

• From Upper-Level / Drop-off and Ticketing: Exit the Barbara Jordan Terminal to use the pedestrian crosswalk to cross the street to the garage. Walk through the parking garage following the signs to the Rental Car Facility. Take the elevators on left, down one floor (Level G) to reach pick-up area.
