There are three large airports within reasonable driving distance of Baylor, Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), Dallas Love Field (DAL), and Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS). Waco has its own small airport, Waco Regional (ACT), which offers connecting service to and from DFW.
DFW is 112 miles from Baylor, and Love Field (DAL) is 103 miles. The Austin airport (AUS) is 113 miles. Click here for a map of airport locations. There are no easy transfer options from the Austin Airport (AUS). But there is a van service from DFW and Love Field (DAL) to Waco, www.waco-streak.com. This service MUST be booked in advance as it regularly fills up.
Some of the hotels offer shuttle service from the Waco Airport (ACT). Care transportation provides a flat-rate taxi service from the Waco Airport ($50) and from DFW and Austin airports ($200).
Of course, car rentals are available as well.
Several hotels close to Baylor campus have agreed to conference rates. Care transportation will be providing a shuttle service to and from these hotels in the morning and evening for the duration of the conference. To be sure of receiving the conference rate, book your hotel room more than two weeks in advance. Click here for a map of nearby hotels.
