There are many ways to roll to the Paramount and Stateside Theatres on two wheels. Ride your own bike and park at one of the many bike racks on the
block in front of our theatres. Austin is also full of rentable bikes and scooters that can connect you to and from the train station or bus stop, from JUMP, Lime, Bird, SpinAustin BCycle, and more. Download their apps and take a ride. Please ride safely, and yield to pedestrians to help keep our downtown community a pleasant place for all modes of transportation.


You’ll see pedicabs throughout downtown and drivers are fully licensed by the City of Austin. Rates vary – be sure to ask your driver about the price per rider or per trip before hopping in.
