Meet me at ACL

The long wait is over: ACL is here! The weather’s looking good today, the new Zilker lawn is shockingly green and beautiful, and you even get a free ride down to the park.

Capital Metro is providing shuttle service to ACL–the bus leaves from Republic Square, 5th and Guadalupe, and will take you directly to Zilker Park. The shuttles will begin at 10 a.m. each day and the last departure from Republic Square to Zilker Park is at 8 p.m. The last shuttle will return passengers after the festival around 11 p.m.

There’s limited parking around Republic Square, but there’s a number of bus routes, and of course we encourage everyone to take the bus. Here’s a handy map, behind the cut.

One thought on “Meet me at ACL

    By the time Pearl Jam left the stage last night, and muddy concert-goers had straggled over to South Congress Avenue, the last 1L/1M had already passed in both directions. I saw dozens of people gathered at the bus stops on South Congress Avenue. I guess the Night Owl eventually scooped them up — if there was enough room on it — but I suspect most were left with no alternative but to walk or take cabs (if you could find one).

    Next year, CM ought to think about extending fixed-route service on Sunday night.
