The bus station in Houston is downtown. He would have to ride a Metro bus to downtown, get on another bus for Austin. Honestly, the gas prices are high, but it would save so much time for him if you just picked him up at the airport.

If he chooses to take a taxi to the bus station, then pay for bus fare to Austin, there isn't much difference than paying for your gasoline. Depends on whether or not he's worth the hassle of driving to pick him up.

Houston is crazy? Not any more than Austin traffic, my dear!

Take Hwy 290 to the Sam Houston Tollway, to Hardy Toll Road, then Airport Exit and you are there in just over 3 hours.

If you prefer, exit FM 2920 near Waller and drive across the north side of Harris County until you cross I-45. You can then follow signs to Hardy Toll Rd south and take the airport exit. It will add 1/2 hour to your travel, but it might be easier to navigate. And saves tolls.
