Ride Cap Metro to ACL

Friday, October 7, 2022 by Tai Moses

Capital Metro wants to be your date to Austin City Limits. Check out the transit agency’s ACL page if you want a car-free way of getting to Zilker Park in time for the festival. Here are a few more things to know:

  • Bus and bike options will get you to Republic Square for the free ACL shuttles or close to the park itself (the corner of South Lamar & Barton Springs for a quick walk to Zilker).
  • Rapid routes run every 15 minutes on weekdays.
  • Night Owl routes run until about 3 a.m. Friday and Saturday nights.
  • Route 30 is on detour, avoiding Zilker Park both weekends. Route 4 will service Stop ID 1977 on Veterans Drive after 7 p.m.
  • Take MetroRail’s special event service on Sunday, Oct. 9, to get the Austin FC game at Q2 Stadium. Trains will service Kramer Station till about 8 p.m.
  • MetroRail does not run on Sunday, Oct. 16.
