Soon, there will be virtually hundreds of people descending upon Austin for the annual Austin City Limits music festival, which takes place from October 5 through October 7, and again from October 12 through October 14.

It’s important to note that there is no parking permitted in Zilker Park during the festival, which means that you should take the time to plan ahead before going to enjoy all of the festivities.

Here are a few of the ways that you can get to and from the festival and avoid traffic.

*Take the official festival shuttle.

*Capital Metro bus routes 801, 803, 2, 7, 10, and 20. All of these make regular stops at Republic Square. The MetroRail schedule is also being extended during the festival.

*Ride a B-cycle from one of the many local stations, then drop it off at the station located on Sterzing Street and Barton Springs Road.

*Take a pedicab either to or from the festival. You will find the staging area at the northeast corner of Azie Morton Road and Barton Springs Road, which is where the festival entrance will be close to.

*Ride a dockless scooter or bike, then leave it at the designated drop-off area, which will be located along Toomey Road.

*Take your personal bicycle. Racks will be provided to lock it up, and it will be in the same area as the drop-off area for dockless scooters and bikes.

*Take a taxi and be dropped off along one of three locations: Wallingwood Drive, Lee Barton Drive, or Veterans Drive.
