Transit Options

While finding parking in downtown Austin can be a challenge, finding a transit line that gets you there is easy! Try transit to and from the Paramount Theatre. It costs less than covered parking and you’ll avoid circling the city looking for a spot. Nearby transit stops include 8th/Congress, 11th/Congress, 8th/Lavaca, 8th/Guadalupe or take MetroRail to the Downtown Station.

Transit Routes: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, 17, 19, 20, 21, 22, 30, 37, 801, 803, 985 and MetroRail will get you there!
