College Tour Transportation to UT Austin

Campus tours are an important part of choosing a university for high school students. But organizing a field trip to a college campus can be quite tedious, especially if you’re traveling with dozens of students in busy Central Austin. National Charter Bus is here to help you simplify your transportation so you can plan other important parts of your students’ trip, such as group tour times or visits to local restaurants.

When you rent with us, you’ll have access to buses with flat-screen TVs so you can keep students entertained and onboard restrooms so you won’t have to stop as often on the way. You’ll also be paired with an experienced, professional driver who can navigate your group around Forty Acres’ complicated road system.

Book Your UT Austin Group Tour

As the biggest university in the state, UT Austin receives a huge number of requests for group tours. Groups of 10 to 100 members should schedule a tour with the Visitor Center in the Office of Admissions. One chaperone is required for every ten students during group tours, and groups are encouraged to schedule these tours well in advance.

The tour request form is just that: a request. Once you submit the form, a group tour coordinator will reach out to your school or community organization to confirm the date and time of your tour. Each group visit will include a tour led by a current UT Austin student and an information session with admissions staff.

With over 70,000 people commuting to the campus daily and only around 16,000 parking spots available, parking on UT Austin’s campus is notoriously difficult. Buses have few parking options, but at National Charter Bus we have all your transportation logistics covered. The driver will make sure your group is dropped off at Walter Webb Hall for your tour, and then they will find a safe place to park off-campus until it’s time to pick you up.
