 Visit Austin/Local Transportation

The secret is out. Everyone who visits Austin these days leaves with something great to say. They can't stop talking about the legendary live music, burgeoning restaurant scene, and unique culture. And a list of other things that you just have to experience for yourself to truly understand what makes Austin so Austin.

Host Information Desk
The Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority (CapMetro) will have a general information desk in the APTA registration area in Westin Austin Downtown from Sunday, July 24 through Tuesday, July 26. Host staff will be available to answer questions you may have regarding local sites, restaurants, social and cultural activities, and to provide transportation information and maps. The host information desk will be open the same hours as the APTA registration desk. 

​​Sunday, July 24 10 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Monday, July 25 ​7 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.​​
Tuesday, July 26 ​7 a.m. - noon
 
Complimentary Transit Pass
Attendees who register two weeks prior to the workshop will receive an email from APTA with information on downloading an electronic complimentary transit pass from CapMetro. There will also be information on downloading a one-day Austin B-Cycle pass so you can experience the city via bikeshare. If you register within two weeks of the workshop, you can visit the host information desk and learn more information on picking up or downloading these passes on-site.
