ACL Fest 2019

It's a great time of year for Austinites - both those here year-round and those in town just for the show. CapMetro makes it easy to get to Zilker Park for all the great music. Our MetroRapid & High-Frequency routes run every 15 minutes or better, 7 days a week! MetroExpress operates all weekend, and our Late-Night services have you covered until after 2 a.m.

High-Frequency Network

Our High-Frequency Network gives you all of Austin - north, south, east & west - every 15 minutes. With 14 routes that operate every 15 minutes from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., 7 days a week, we make it easier to get where you need to go.

Getting around during ACL

MetroRail is not running on weekends temporarily, but we've got a lot of great ways for you to get around town. And, don't forget, KIDS RIDE FREE on all CapMetro services, all the time!
You've got your choice of the following to get to the show:

  • Several MetroBus lines - including Routes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, 17, 19 and 20 - drop riders off within a block of the shuttle site and will operate throughout the festival.

  • MetroExpress Routes 980 and 985 will take you downtown from North Austin all weekend long. Avoid parking troubles and traffic by zooming down the MoPac Express Lanes straight to Republic Square and the ACL Shuttle site.

    • 14 routes that operate every 15 minutes between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m., 7 days a week.
    • 8 High-Frequency routes serve Republic Square Park.
    • Get anywhere you need to go … north, south, east & west
  • ACL shuttles operate from Republic Square and will offer FREE rides to Zilker Park and the festival. CapMetro gets you right to Republic Square and the shuttles, which begin at 10 a.m. with the final shuttle returning from the park at 11 p.m. each day of the festival.

  • After the festival is over, continue to rock with our late-night services. There's no Late-Night Service on Sundays though.
