Downtown Transportation

SXSW Festival Shuttles
The SXSW Festival Shuttle is our free circulating shuttle that runs between the Austin Convention Center and within walking distance of most SXSW festival venues. Shuttles typically run from 9am – 2:30am daily, with peak service hours between 9am and 7pm. This one-route system helps get you within walking distance of even the most remote festival venues. Catch the SXSW Festival Shuttle outside the Convention Center on Trinity Street. Check back after the first of the year to see our shuttle map and for detailed hours of operation.

Expect a shuttle every 10 minutes from 9am – 7pm.
After 7pm, every 15-20 minutes.

Look for pedicab staging areas around downtown, or just flag one down.
