CapMetro isn't that bad when you use Dabnab to plan your routes. Look at these links, if you think it's a hassle, rent a car. My guess is you're coming to Austin Texas for the music and don't plan on a lot of sight seeing.

For bike rentals -

Hope this points you in the right direction.

Rent, public transportation here is among the worst in most cities Ive been to. You want an idea of their ineptitude? Capital Metro, our public transportation company, had a surplus of 219 million dollars 3 years ago, this year they have 30 million and are borrowing 10 million from the city. New projects completed by them to account for the missing money, 0. Still waiting on that commuter rail. Get a car or take a taxi downtown and don't plan to leave downtown and try to walk.

Austin has city buses and there are places that rent bikes, but it is spread out and everyone drives. Unless you enjoy squinting at bus maps and trying to figure out connections among buses that run every 40 minutes, I'd get a car.

We Texans have just never cottoned to public transportation for some reason. We seem to prefer driving our own cars. If I were you, I'd rent one!

Have a good trip!
