Opt Out of SXSW Traffic

Not only is traffic congestion back to pre-pandemic levels, it's worse in downtown Austin because of construction-related lane closures. When Spring festival season begins next week there will be even more street closures.

If you plan to come downtown for work, fun, or both, plan now for non-drive-alone modes - you have lots to pick from! From CapMetro extended service to carpool connections through Get There Central Texas, there are plenty of ways to reduce the volume of vehicles on our roads and save yourself the hassle of dealing with traffic and parking.

Movability and our partners have created a guide for transportation and parking resources, street closures, and more to help you enjoy Spring Festival season!
