Dixie Dude Ranch is only 55 miles northwest of San Antonio.
Taxi services are available at San Antonio International Airport for transfers to the ranch if you opt to not rent a vehicle. We can recommend two taxi services which provide most transfers to the ranch. We are happy to help you arrange your transfer or provide you with contact information for these services. Current rates to/from the airport range from $150.00 – $170.00 per carload one way. Rates to/from downtown San Antonio can be up to an additional $30.00. At this time there are no public bus routes that go through Bandera.
Route 1 -Most direct way and best usage of major Highways: Exiting the airport, take Hwy. 281 north to Loop 1604. Go west on Loop 1604 until you reach Interstate 10–exit west on IH10 to Boerne. When you reach Boerne, take Hwy 46 west–you’ll exit right and then turn left and go over the freeway. Stay on Hwy 46 until Hwy. 16, then turn right. Take Hwy. 16 to the town of Bandera. At the intersection of Hwy. 173 and Hwy. 16 (at the stop light; Bandera Bank will be in front of you), turn left on 173. Go .5 miles over the Medina River bridge to the first right at Ranch Road 1077. Follow 1077 for 7.5 miles and look for our sign on the right side of the road; turn right onto Dixie Dude Ranch Road and follow it to our headquarters.
