AUSTIN-Dozens of shuttle buses are lined up outside the Austin Convention Center to pick up race fans and bring them to the Circuit of the America's track.

The shuttle service runs from 7 am Sunday morning until 7:30 pm. It costs $5 dollars to ride from the location at 4th and Trinity to the track in Elroy.

COTA asks people staying in hotels to walk to the shuttle pick up and leave their vehicles in hotel parking lots. Parking is limited near the Austin Convention Center.

Sunday morning there wasn't much of a wait, but it is expected to pick up closer to race time at 1 pm.

One race fan says the biggest inconvenience is having to walk once the buses drop off passengers near the track.
