I finally signed up for Twitter and I follow the AUS feed. I found this chart interesting...guess the new gates are definitely needed.

OK, that's funny

The hottest and most miserable month gets most travellers

OK, the weather is cold and VERY windy right now, but still ....

BTW, for my fellow Budget Travelers I stongly recommend #100 express bus which goes through downtown and ends at UT.

Or, at least Uber and Lyft are back so we have decent priced car services into the city now, rather than the taxis!

Big fan of bus #100 to downtown and UT. As carryon only guy this worked great, actually mostly TO the airport when there were some OUTSTANDING fares ex AUS to Latin America last year Would LOVE to see some more $3xx r/t fares again this year .....

#100 airport flyer route is going away June 2018. It only had 5 stops between downtown and the airport so it wasn't much slower than a private car. Ran every 30 min.

#20 route (Riverside) is being extended to go to the airport and will run every 15 min most of the day. But there will now be 26 stops between downtown and the airport.

I'll no longer take the bus to the airport but will probably take it coming home when I'm not pressed for time.

I'd love to see limited stop rail service connecting UT, downtown, and the airport but the #100 airport flyer didn't have high ridership unfortunately.

This is sad to see, as I have another flight from AUS in September, and was planning on positioning via Megabus, which connects nicely to #100 .

My one trip from the airport and to the airport indeed had few pax going all the way to/from AUS.

I'll probably have to spend the night in Austin, as I don't like the idea of only having two hours between published arrival time and departure, though depending on how much Uber or whatever it is that Austin has may be cheaper than staying the night.
