Hey everybody! I'm in monterrey mexico right know planning a trip to austin tx, Im always looking for a way to save a little money so I was wondering if there's a way to catch a ride or something? or do I necessarily need to take a bus? Thank you! :)

Well, presuming you can get to Laredo with no crossing the border problems, it's only about a 3-hour bus ride up to Austin. You could try to hitchhike, I suppose, but you are more likely to get picked up by the police (wondering about your legal status) as you are to get a ride from a passerby.

I'd just take a bus to Nuevo Laredo, cross the border, then get a regular bus to Austin (via San Antonio).
