SXSW venues and events are peppered throughout Downtown Austin and attempting to get to the next session, meet up, or showcase might seem unattainable. We’d like to be excluded from that false narrative. Most venues are walkable and within a few minutes of each other. At SXSW, we are always ready to roll out a little Southern hospitality for our out-of-towners. So here are some resources that can get you where you need to go!

  • SXSW Shuttles – A free circulating shuttle route runs between the Austin Convention Center and most SXSW venues during the March event. Track your ride in real time and catch the SXSW Shuttle outside the Convention Center on Trinity Street.
  • Airport TransportationSuperShuttle Austin offers a stellar shared-ride service with rides to and from the airport and around town.
  • Rental Cars – Hauling gear? Whatever your rental car needs, Enterprise will pick you up.
  • Registration Walking Map – Once you make it downtown to pick up your SXSW Badge at the Austin Convention Center, use our helpful Registration Walking Map. For more information and real-time updates during SXSW 2024, visit the Getting Around Austin & SXSW landing page.
