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 12:00PM on both Fridays and at 11:00AM on both Saturdays and Sundays. The shuttles make their final return from the park at 11:00PM each day of the Festival.
USING PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION TO GET TO THE SHUTTLE:
Cap Metro’s high-frequency 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 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. Additional bike and Scooter (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.
