Ready for ACL Weekend Two? Get There without the Hassle of Parking!

Good news, ACL Fest attendees: weekend two is promising to have much nicer weather, perfect for walking, taking the bus, riding your bike, or using other options.

There are lots of car-free ways to get to ACL. Even if you're not planning to attend the festival, chances are good you'll be impacted by the traffic from street closures and visitors getting around. This is an excellent opportunity to try out mobility options to bypass both traffic and crowds. Here are a few ideas for visitors and locals alike:

  • Take transit: Capital Metro is offering special event service during the festival.

  • Take the free shuttle that will run from Republic Square. The shuttles begin at Republic Square at 12:00 PM on Friday and at 11:00 AM on Saturday and Sunday. The shuttles make their final return from the square at 11:00 PM each day of the festival. Shuttles will board at the corner of 4th & Guadalupe streets and drop passengers off on Barton Springs Road, outside of the Barton Springs West Entrance.

  • Ride a bike: ACL Festival provides plenty of bike parking. If you don’t have your own, rent a bike from Austin B-Cycle or Jump. Check out this bike route and micro-mobility drop-off map.

  • Scoot: Just make sure you park your scooter in designated spots! Bird and Spin are just a few of the scooter options around town.

  • Carpool: Share a ride with Via, Carma, Scoop, Lyft Line or organize your own!

  • Ride Share: Car2Go and Zipcar let you drive without the hassle of finding your own parking.

Using mobility options will help you enjoy the music without the hassle of parking and traffic jams, and you’ll be keeping Austin’s air cleaner by reducing emissions. Rock on!
