If coming from the airport, one of Austin’s local ridesharing options, Fare or Fasten, are cheap and easy options for getting to the Native. Download the apps at the airport and have a ride waiting for you after you pick up your bags. There are also regular taxis always available at the airport, if you prefer.
If you’d like to take public transit, Native is located along Austin’s MetroRail Red Line, halfway between the Downtown and Plaza Saltillo stops. Both are a short quarter mile walk from our property. The Airport Flyer (100) bus will drop you off just 4 blocks from Native. The 4, 17, 21, 22 Cap Metro bus routes have stops within a few blocks, as well, for inner city transit..
Located in between vibrant downtown Austin and the burgeoning East Side, the Native provides easy access to all of our favorite Austin spots. We are two blocks from the Austin Convention Center and downtown, less than a mile from Lady Bird Lake and the 10 miles of hike-and-bike trail surrounding it, and in the midst of east Austin with its famed barbecue, taco trucks, and coffee shops.
