     27==== Arriving by plane ====
     28
     29For those arriving by plane, the airport is about 12 miles from campus. There is an [http://www.capmetro.org/riding/current_schedules/MAPS/RT100_SB.PDF airport flyer bus (route 100)] that services the UT campus and runs every 40 minutes from about 6am to 11pm.  Fare is $1, and the end of the line is a block away from the sprint location. Expect about a 30 minute ride.
     30
     31==== Parking ====
     32
     33'''Note:''' all surface parking on campus requires a faculty/staff/student permit (some only M-F, 7:30am to 5:45pm) and without a permit '''you will be ticketed'''.
     34
     35For parking on Friday, options are:
     36 * One of several garages on campus.  Cost is $9 for any duration over 2.5 hours.  The San Jacinto Garage (SJG) and Speedway Garage (SWG) are both a couple blocks from the sprint location.
