You might be deep in the heart of SXSW® every year, but have you ever wondered what the rest of Texas has to offer? We've set up a lounge for the explorer in you, featuring:

  • Texas BBQ and Breakfast Tacos
  • Only the best Local Libations
  • .Personalized gifts from local artisans, including custom patches by Fort Lonesome & leather bracelets by Fortuna Monsoon
  • An intimate secret show (Saturday 3/10 at 8pm)

car2go members and SXSW® badge-holders get priority entrance, but the lounge is open to the public too. We also make it easy to get to the party with VIP parking at our Dop Zone.

When you get to SXSW, you don't have to beg your friends for rides into town, you don't need to pay a costly cab fare, and you don't even need to wait on a rideshare! Drive yourself to your next destination directly from the airport by taking car2go. There are no long lines or lengthy contracts required, just download the app, join car2go and start driving! Grab a car2go at The Parking Spot, next to Austin Bergstrom International Airport.

Why car2go instead of rideshare?

When you drive car2go, you're in charge of your ride. That means no strangers in the car, no waiting on drivers, and no awkward conversations. Plus, you'll be rolling in a Mercedes-Benz.

You'll always know what you're paying and you'll never pay a surge price. Just choose from one of hundreds of cars in Austin, drive all over SXSW, and easily park for free in one of our downtown valet-style Drop Zones.

See you on the road at SXSW!
