KVUE — Thousands of people are expected to visit Zilker Park in the coming weekends for the 2017 Austin City Limits Music Festival, and that means you need to know how to get to and from the park without being stuck in traffic during your favorite act’s performance.

There is no parking at Zilker for the festival, but ACL Fest does offer complimentary shuttles that run between the Barton Springs West Entrance of the park and Republic Square, located at Fourth and Guadalupe streets in downtown Austin.

Shuttles will begin running at 10:30 am and make their final return from the park at 11 pm. each day of the festival. CapMetro will have increased service both weekends. 

RideAustin is the official rideshare service of festival and will have pick-up/drop-offs near Austin High School each day. Attendees will need to take the MoPac footbridge across Lady Bird Lake to get to the festival. The festival’s website states those new to RideAustin can enter the promo code ACLFEST17 for $5 in credits.
