Take Cap Metro to ACL

Friday, October 14, 2022 by Tai Moses

You know you can’t drive to the ACL Fest, but you’re not sure how exactly you’re going to get there? Capital Metro has several options to get you to Zilker Park in time for the festival. The transit agency’s bus and bike options will get you to Republic Square where you can pick up a free ACL shuttle. You can also get close enough to the park itself (the corner of South Lamar & Barton Springs) to simply walk the rest of the way. Some other options:

  • Rapid routes run every 15 minutes on weekdays.
  • Night Owl routes have you covered 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.
  • Rail will only extend service hours for the Austin FC game at Q2 Stadium on Sunday, Oct. 16.
