The circuit is located just 24 kms (15 mi) south-east of the city centre of Austin. Driving is the most popular option and from downtown Austin; fans should take highway 71 or the 45 toll road. However, journey times are estimated at around two hours (usually 35 minutes), due to traffic congestion and fans are urged to leave plenty of time to get to the circuit on time.

The closest airport to the circuit is the Austin Bergstrom International Airport, just over three kilometres (2 miles) away. The airport provides direct connections to many major US cities such as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Atlanta, as well as direct international connection to London. From the airport, it is a short drive (15 minutes under normal conditions) to the Circuit of the Americas and can easily be accomplished by taxi or hire car. Drivers should take the 130 highway South and the circuit is located just off this road.

The circuit operators offer special shuttle buses during race weekend and fans with F1 tickets can ride the shuttle bus for free. The shuttle buses run from downtown Austin (15th Street and Trinity Street) to the circuit. Depending on traffic, shuttle times are estimated to take anywhere from 45 minutes to three hours.

Fans without budgetary constraints can consider using a helicopter transfer from downtown Austin to the race track.
