Transportation Management Services (TMS) has been brought on board to revamp SXSW’s hotel shuttle service SXSW 2014. The TMS Hotel Shuttle will circulate non-stop between the Austin Convention Center and over fifty Official SXSW hotels that are beyond convenient walking distance.
During SXSW Austin’s downtown parking rates are steep and the lots are overwhelmed by vehicles and activities. Taxis are hard to come by – especially at night – and have long wait times. If you’ve been to SXSW in the past you know how challenging ground transportation can be and will appreciate how useful a shuttle service can be from early in the morning to very late at night.
A nine-day pass costs just $120 and a five-day pass is $80. Or you can ride for a single day with a $20 one-day pass. Shuttles should hit every stop at least hourly – you can view hours of operation and a list of hotels on the shuttle route here.
