Welcome to March Madness

For the many Austinites who have been around for a while we all know March is a busy time for the city. Thousands of people will be coming and going this month so you might want to avoid the traffic and parking headaches by taking the bus when you can.

Let the fun begin:

UIL State Basketball Tournaments – March 5-7 and March 12-14 at the Erwin Center. Catch routes 10, 20, 37, 137 and the UT shuttles.

Texas Independence Day Parade – March 7 along Congress Avenue. Catch most local routes that go downtown to see the parade.

South by Southwest Interactive, Music and Film Festival – March 13-22. Taking place all over town. You can catch almost any of our routes to see a show. We’re also extending the ‘Dillos until 11 p.m.

Star of Texas Fair and Rodeo – March 13-28 at the Travis County Expo Center. Take route 37 or 137.

Spring Break – March 16-20. At least some people are leaving town this month.

St. Patrick’s Day – March 17 on 6th and in the Warehouse District. Don’t drink and drive. Ride the Night Owls.

MetroRail Grand Opening – March 28. Parties at all nine stations and free rides throughout the day. More details to come soon.

And, if you have the energy….

Capital 10K – March 29, between Congress and Mopac. There are a handful of routes that will get you to the starting line.

Did I miss anything? If so, let me know because I think my schedule is already full!!
