Avoid Traffic with Capital Metro

Thousands of people will be in Austin this weekend for two major events: the Austin City Limits Music Festival and the University of Texas football game. Whether you’re a music lover or a devoted UT fan, you should plan your trip ahead of time to avoid the heavy traffic.

ACL Festival-goers are encouraged to ride our FREE shuttles from Republic Square to Zilker Park. The shuttles begin at 10 a.m each day and the last shuttle picks up after the festival around 11 p.m. We also advise people to catch a local bus route to Republic Square. Click here for more details on the shuttles and a map of the routes near the shuttle pick up location.

UT fans should take advantage of Capital Metro’s Huddle Shuttle. The shuttle picks up at two locations, Barton Creek Mall or 51st Street and drops you off near the stadium at Robert Dedman and 23rd Street. The shuttles will begin at Noon on Saturday. Kick off is at 2:30 p.m. Click here for more information.

And, if you’re one of the many people who are not going to either event, you should avoid driving around Austin altogether. Take a bus to your favorite museum, boutique or movie theater. Have a safe and happy weekend!

    I'd love to know whose bright idea it was to detour the Manor Rd. bus yesterday an hour before the football game. I was trying to get to Manor Rd. from Congress & Riverside for a tailgate party. The #20 got to 12th & Red River and then went east on a detour. The entire bus full of burnt orange people had to walk from there to the stadium, and I had even farther to walk to where I was headed.

    Unless al-Qaeda had seized control of Red River, this made no sense to me at all.
