We strongly encourage you explore the various green options for getting to Auditorium Shores.
Ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft are also a great way to get to the event.
Or, why not carpool to the event with a group of your friends. Park in the paid high-rise parking lot at 3rd and San Antonio (next to the Austin Music Hall), then take the free Austin Reggae Festival shuttle bus to the event. Again, there is a fee to park in this lot — but the shuttle bus to the event is FREE.
Please note that this high-rise parking lot is closed to public parking until 5:00 pm on Fridays — until then, use the paid surface lot across the street.
Or, better yet, ride your bike. We will plenty of racks where you can lock your bicycle while you are enjoying the show. Or, use the Capital Metro trip planner to get to the event from wherever you are in Austin.
You might also park north and ride the new Capital MetroRail downtown. The Capital MetroRail runs until midnight on Friday and begins service at 4:00 pm on Saturday. The Capital MetroRail does NOT run on Sunday.
There are also several paid parking lots within a three-block walk of Butler Park. These lots include:
1. The Austin Convention Center parking garage (2nd & Brazos). This garage is available for parking all day on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. There is a fee to park at this location.
2. The garage at the Austin City Hall complex (Cesar Chavez & Guadalupe). This garage is available for parking all day on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. There is a fee to park at this location.
Please not that the garage at Palmer Events Center (Riverside & South First) is NOT open for parking for the 2015 Austin Reggae Festival. Again, the garage at Palmer Events Center (Riverside & South First) is NOT open for parking for the 2015 Austin Reggae Festival.
Please be respectful to our friends in the Travis Heights and Bouldin Creek neighborhoods — do NOT park along these neighborhood streets.
