Hotel Shuttles

Hotel Shuttle Banner

SXSW and Transportation Management Systems (TMS), the official ground transportation provider for SXSW 2015, have used last year’s rider feedback to help design a more robust and efficient hotel shuttle service for Registrants staying at hotels outside of the downtown walkable area.

If you’re staying at one of the 53 hotels on the hotel shuttle route that are listed below, you can pre-purchase your hotel shuttle pass from TMS now (hotel shuttle passes are fully refundable before February 7 if your plans change). Advance purchase will improve your shuttle experience because TMS can gauge ridership on your route and assign vehicles to provide the best frequency of service.

Shuttles will run early morning through late night from March 12th through March 21st between the Austin Convention Center and all of our hotels outside the easily walkable downtown area:

March 12, 2015: 10:00am – 6:00pm
March 13 – March 16, 2015: 7:00am – 2:00am
March 17, 2015: 7:00am – 2:30am
March 18 - March 21, 2015: 9:00am – 2:30am

The TMS Hotel Shuttle service is offered at a reasonable cost to all SXSW Registrants. To continue to serve your needs and keep your transportation costs low, shuttle passes are available at the same rates as last year:

Nine-day Pass: $120
Five-day Pass: $80
Single-day pass: $20
