Parking can be challenging for ACL. Here are some solutions

Some options are a shuttle or parking garages.

AUSTIN, Texas — Friday starts the second weekend of the Austin City Limits Music Festival, and parking during the fest can be a challenge.

There is no parking allowed at Zilker Park and there are signs posted up in nearby neighborhoods that say “No Event Parking.”

"They came out pretty early in the week before ACL and put them out several days before," said Austin resident Amber Mullinkin.

Mullinkin said during Weekend 1 of the festival, attendees saw the signs.

"They adhered to the rules," said Mullinkin, adding that she feels for people trying to find parking for ACL. "That is the one aspect that I think it kind of challenging."

There are some other options to park, including parking garages. One of those options is the Palmer Events Center parking garage.

There are also several other garages and lots that range in price, including parking at the One Texas Center garage on Barton Springs Road and at Austin High School.

Drivers will want to choose a place where parking is allowed because the Austin Police Department was out last weekend and will be out again this weekend. Officers issued 112 citations and 27 warnings and had three vehicles towed for not complying with parking rules.

There are also shuttle options being offered during Weekend 2 of the fest. You can get on the shuttle at Republic Square Park and it will take you to the Barton Springs West festival entrance.
