Driving to Waco

Waco, Texas, is conveniently located in central Texas, approximately one hundred miles south of Dallas/Fort Worth and one hundred miles north of Austin. Interstate 35 runs through the center of Waco, and Baylor University is immediately east of I-35 and can be accessed by using either the University Parks exit or the 4th/5th Street exit.

Flying to Waco

Flying directly to the Waco Regional Airport (ACT) is recommended. However, there are also four other airports within a two-hour or less drive to Waco via Interstate 35: Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), Dallas Love Field (DAL), Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS), and Killeen-Fort Hood Regional Airport (GRK).

Shuttle Service from Dallas Airports to Waco

The Waco Streak provides scheduled airport shuttles to DFW and Love Field four times daily. For more information, call 254-772-0430.

Transportation from airports outside of Waco will require a rental vehicle. Visitors who are flying in to Waco's airport can choose to get a rental car or make arrangements through a ride sharing service of their choice.
