Megabus runs from Austin to San Antonio, Dallas and Houston on several schedules per day.  Rates can be as low as $1 plus booking fee and must be booked online.  The further advance you buy your ticket, the better the deal.  The bus stop is located near the University of Texas next to the Dobie Center/Mall at 2021 Guadalupe St.  It is in the parking lot next to the south end of the building with marked Megabus signs.  Frequency has waned so check with Greyhound as well.

Board Route 350 Northbound (to Northcross TC) from baggage claim level.  Take to Metro Center Dr and Riverside Dr (about 6 to 8 minutes).  Get off across from La Quinta Inn.  Walk 1 block on Metro Center Dr to large park area.  You should be able to see PPD across park.  Follow path to cross creek and to parking lot. 

From Amtrak Train Station and Downtown:

(To get downtown, follow first section in bold). 

First cross tracks (make sure no train coming!) and continue north along side 4 lane road (Lamar Blvd) to 5th St.  Find bus stop on 5th on either side of Lamar Blvd.  Catch Route 22 or Route 4 to 5th and Guadalupe (about 4 minutes).  Ideally catch the Route 4.

 

To PPD:

From 5th and Guadalupe, catch Route 4 or Route 20 at 4th and Guadalupe to end of line at ACC Riverside campus.  Catch Route 350 southbound to (Bergstrom Airport/De Valle) and get off after the bus crosses Ben White and the La Quinta.  Walk around building to the right to the trail.  Follow path to cross creek and to parking lot. 

From Greyhound Bus Station:

For all clinics, follow first section in bold

Exit bus side of station and walk to corner of Middle Fiskville and Clayton Dr.  Walk north on Middle Fiskville to East Highland Mall Blvd (3 blocks).  Turn left and walk 2 blocks to Jonathan Dr.  There will be two bus stops, one further ahead which is the main stop and one across the street at NW corner of Jonathan Dr and E Highland Mall Blvd.

Hotels:

There are several business chain hotels in the area.  Most are in the low $100's or more. 

Microtel does offer a discount for PPD and is the least expensive rack rate.  It doesn't hurt to ask the other hotels if they have a PPD discount as well.  These discounts will probably be better than booking through a travel site.
