Ride Capital Metro to the Austin City Limits Festival

Ready to rock at ACL 2013? We're ready to get you there both weekends this year, Oct. 4-6 & 11-13.

Ride the official, FREE Austin City Limits Music Festival shuttle, loading up at Republic Square Park at 5th and Guadalupe, with direct service to/from Zilker Park.

The shuttles will run approximately 10 a.m. - 11:00 p.m. each day. The last bus leaves Republic Square for the festival at 8 p.m. The last returning bus back to Republic Square heads out about an hour after the last band leaves the stage each night.

Plan your trip to Republic Square  

Need a ride to downtown?

Don't let downtown parking be your ACL buzzkill. Skip the drama and expense—catch a ride with Capital Metro instead.

Capital Metro has scads of bus routes to get you from home to downtown and back again, for a mere $2 round trip.

Take Note: Due to the event, regular bus service will be detoured along Routes 3, 30, 111, 171, 970 , 982 and 983 on 4th Street around Republic Square Park, and on Barton Springs (west of Lamar) near Zilker Park, from start of service until end of service each day of the festival. 

Another option for ACL festival goers is to take MetroRail into downtown Austin, which will operate its regular schedule Friday and Saturday until midnight. The Downtown Station, located at 4th and Trinity, is within walking distance of the Republic Square shuttle.

If your good times continue well past the last band leaves the stage, no worries. On Friday and Saturday nights, Capital Metro's Night Owl and E-Bus routes run until about 3 a.m. between downtown and neighborhoods throughout the city. (Plan ahead on Sunday night as there is no late night service—Capital Metro buses run until about 10-11 p.m. on Sunday.) 

Catch the Night Owl at the downtown bus stop on 6th and Congress. The E-Bus downtown bus stop is now located at 7th, between Neches and Red River, for Routes 410 West Campus, 411 Riverside and 412 Main Campus.

Hassle-free. Cheap. Safe. You rock. We'll roll.
