SXSW is proud to announce that Chevrolet is back as a 2013 SXSW Super Sponsor!
For the past three years running, Chevrolet has brought a fleet of Cruze sedans and Equinox crossovers to provide continuous shuttle service throughout the duration of the festival. The “Catch a Chevy” program is a huge convenience to our registrants, providing upwards of 10,000 rides each year. Vehicles can be hailed just like a taxi, or caught at the designated “Catch a Chevy” stop at 4th & Trinity right outside of the Austin Convention Center. Once you catch a ride, they will take you anywhere you want to go in downtown Austin, and the best part; it is 100% free for SXSW badge and wristband holders.
