The San Marcos Municipal Airport provides national and
international flight services on a regular schedule. The airport,
professionally managed by Texas Aviation Partners, features three recently
upgraded runways, each more than one mile in length, and situated to eliminate
crosswind hazards. Service facilities at the airport provide full airframe and
power plant repairs, avionics repair and installation, and fuel provision.
Ground transportation to surrounding restaurants and lodging can be easily
arranged, and the airport terminal provides a conference room for business
needs. The Austin-Bergstrom International Airport is located approximately 30
minutes north of San Marcos, and the San Antonio International Airport is
located less than 1 hour south of San Marcos. Both provide national and
international business and cargo flights on a daily basis.
Several freight rails associated with the Burlington
Northern and San Francisco lines run through the region.
Import and export opportunities into northern Mexico are
made possible because of easy accessibility to Interstate 35, which also
connects the San Marcos region to major cities such as Austin (30 minutes
north), San Antonio (45 minutes south) and the DFW metroplex. The interstate
provides convenient access to major city services, in addition to providing a
thoroughfare for exchange and ground travel within the United States. Other
routes, such as Interstate 10, place the greater San Marcos region not far in
proximity to ports along the Gulf Coast. With its central geographic location in the
state, the greater San Marcos area is truly located deep in the heart of Texas.
Greater San Marcos is home to institutions of higher
education and career technical training centers such as Texas State University-
San Marcos, Gary Job Corps, and two Austin Community College campuses,
providing a quality workforce to area companies. These sources provide a continual
source of capable talent to local businesses in need of employees with technical
and intellectual capabilities.
