thanks guys! I looked, and it apprears that I can get on the 37 bus and get there in 20 minutes.

No one takes the bus where I live so that will be a little different (and nice) for me.

Mueller to U.T is also very bikeable. Getting under I35 at Airport can be a little scary, and there is a nasty bit of uphill on 38th, but once you hit Speedway, there are bike lanes and it is mostly flat. If you lived in French Place, you could basically walk.

Thank you!

"Don't live in the east side" comes up everytime someone asks about Austin. I really start to resent that remark.

I live east and love my neighborhood.

You could also bike up to the UT shuttle stop (Cameron Road route) at Cameron Road & Broadmoor. You would have less than a 10 minute shuttle ride to campus if you get on at this point. Probably 20 minutes on the way back. The UT shuttle buses also have bike racks.

I took the 37 to campus a few times when the UT shuttles aren't running. It will get you there, but drops you off farther from campus than the UT shuttle, and takes a bit longer, as it has many stops between Mueller and the UT area. The frequency of the 37 is about 30 minutes, compared to 12 minutes for the Cameron Road UT shuttle bus. You'd have to get off the bus around I-35 and Dean Keeton and walk/cycle to the actual heart of campus...probably 3/4 to 1 mile in distance. The law school is a bit closer. The 37 is great for getting downtown, however. There is also a "night owl" bus (485) that goes through Muller and picks up intoxicated people from 6th street at 12:10am, 1:10am, 2:10am, and 3:10am. When I had time to party during grad school, the night owl worked great as it completely eliminated having to get any kind of sober driver.

I lived about a mile north of Mueller off of Cameron Road for the past two years while getting my master's at UT. Overall, it was a pretty good place to live during grad school. Much cheaper than West Campus or Hyde Park, and very convenient to almost everything in Austin. The neighborhood is also much more integrated than the rest of Austin as another poster mentioned. Lots of people of different ethnicities and ages. Not that many other students, however.

THANK YOU SO MUCH! Your advice is wonderful.

Now, one more BUS uestion. I need to get to FAR south campus..... on the edge of campus. So, that is why I was thinking the 37 bus would be OK. Do you think the Cameron Road bus could bring me there in the same amount of time as you mentioned earlier?
