Bicycles - Bike racks are available at each of the Festival entrance gates, with plenty of lighting.  You must provide your own lock.

Passenger Drop Off - The passenger drop off area is at the north end of the Mopac (Loop1) Pedestrian Bridge on Stephen F.

Austin Drive from the east  This is the only official drop off point.  It's quick and easy.  For safety reasons, please don't attempt to drop off passengers at other areas near the park.
