AUSTIN (KXAN) - With limited parking options available near Zilker Park, Capital Metro will again be partnering with Austin City Limits and offering free shuttle service to and from the music festival.
Buses will run from Republic Square Park, located at 4th and Guadalupe streets, and provide direct service to and from the festival grounds.
The shuttles will run each day during the festival starting at 10 a.m., with the last bus taking people back at 11 p.m.
If attendees plan on using public transportation to reach the shuttle site, CapMetro bus recommends using routes 4, 21 and 22, which have drop-offs within a block of Republic Square Park.
The downtown MetroRail station at 4th and Trinity streets is also within walking distance of the shuttle site.
Because of the event, several bus routes will be detoured during the festival.
This year's event runs two weekends: Oct. 4-6 and Oct. 11-13.
