There are plenty of ways to get to ACL Fest! From taking our festival-provided downtown shuttles to biking to Uber, read on to see a list of the best ways to get to Zilker Park during ACL Festival.
There is no parking at Zilker Park for the ACL Festival, so take advantage of the Complimentary Official Festival Shuttles provided by ACL Fest instead! Board at Republic Square Park at the corner of 4th & Guadalupe streets and you’ll be dropped off on Barton Springs Road outside the Barton Springs West Entrance. When you’re finished rocking, hop back on for a return trip from the same spot, outside the Barton Springs West Entrance.
The shuttles begin at Republic Square at 10:30AM and make their final return from the park at 11PM each day of the Festival.
USING PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION TO GET TO THE SHUTTLE:
Cap Metro’s high-frequency 801, 803, 2, 7, 10, and 20 bus routes stop regularly at Republic Square Park. Check the Cap Metro app or trip-planning website before you go to see the most updated schedule.
Cap Metro has ramped up its service this year and now offers more than a dozen bus routes that operate every 15 minutes, 7 days a week. Your best bet to get to ACL is MetroRapid Route 803. Use the CapMetro App or click here to plan your trip to the festival.
We encourage all of our fans to use pedal power – by far the easiest way to get to the festival! Bike parking is available on Stratford Drive near the Mopac Pedestrian Bridge. New this year parking for bikes and scooters (Dockless Mobility Parking) will be located on Toomey Road at Sterzing Street and on Azie Morton Rd.
Austin B-cycle staff will host a B-Cycle valet at their Barton Springs Road & Sterzing St. station, guaranteeing you a place to dock your B-cycle when you get to the festival.
Take the Ann and Roy Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail for a quick walk downtown and easy access to the festival grounds. Extra lighting is provided for your safety, and there are also user amenities along different spots of the Trail including water fountains, restrooms, and trash cans. View the interactive Trail map here. If you are using the Trail, be mindful of the burn-ban and responsibly discard cigarette butts.
