Does anyone have a suggestion, preferably one that's economically efficient, on how one would go about getting to Marfa from El Paso? Car rental's not an option as I don't know how to drive. Amtrak seems to run only once a day and all the available flights arrive at the airport long after the train's scheduled departure.
Greyhound goes from El Paso to Marfa, although it's a nine hour journey. Go to Greyhound.Com, select "El Paso, TX" as your departure city and "Marfa, TX" as your arrival city, click on [Continue], and then click on [Schedules] and you'll get your options.
It looks like you'll have to spend a night in El Paso and take the train or bus the next day.
Amtrak only stops in Alpine. Greyhound is really the only option without a car.
