Texas A&M University-Kingsville

Local Travel Tips


Students arriving to the English Language Training Center through the Corpus Christi airport should be aware that the University has a contracted taxi driver, Robert Strakos’ Alpha A-taxi, to pick up late/early arriving students who are not eligible for shuttle service. Please note that if you are approached by someone other than the person pictured below, you are not being transported by an authorized contractor of the Center, and are running the risk of being charged as much as two to three times the contractor’s fee of $55.00.

To ensure a timely and safe arrival to the English Language Training Center at Texas A&M University-Kingsville, we recommend that all our students make travel arrangements as early as possible, and to notify our offices of your planned arrival, so that we may make arrangements on your behalf.

  • Shuttle services are available from 8 AM to 8 PM CST only. Trips to or from the airport will be assessed a fee of $10.00 each way.

For those who wish to contact the taxi service upon arrival at the Corpus Christi airport, you may do so at: (361) 290-2385. 

From time to time, we have students who arrive a few days early and who need to spend a few days in a hotel/motel. For those students, there is a local taxi/shuttle service available through Kleberg County Human Services on week days. Calls for pickup service/delivery to the campus  must be made at least one half hour before the desired pickup time. There is a $2.00 fee for this service. The contact number is 595-8572.
