SXSW Festival Shuttles

Catch the SXSW Festival Shuttle

The SXSW Festival Shuttle is the free circulating shuttle that runs between the Austin Convention Center and most SXSW Music, Film, and Interactive Festival Venues. Shuttles will leave the Austin Convention Center approximately every 7 - 10 minutes during conference hours, but run into the wee hours of the morning. One circulating route will take you from the Paramount Theatre all the way to the Alamo Lamar, and places in between. Track the shuttles in real time on the SXSW GO app or at

You can catch the SXSW Festival Shuttle at the Austin Convention Center on Trinity Street just outside of Exhibit Hall 2.
