We strongly encourage public transportation, followed by ride sharing (Uber, Lyft) or carpooling. Grab a group of friends or colleagues and extend your #TxConfWomen networking to and from the conference!



Parking for the event is limited and we strongly encourage carpooling, ride sharing, and mass transit options.

The two main options for parking at the Conference are:

> Park at the Palmer Events Center (w/ free shuttle service). Parking and shuttle service will be available at the Palmer Events Center Garage (900 Barton Springs Road). Shuttle service will pick up at the South Circle driveway (off of Barton Springs Road) at the Palmer Events Center and run to the Austin Convention Center beginning at 6:00 am in a continuous loop until 6:00 pm. Parking fees at Palmer Garage are $8.

Handicapped Access Parking: Individuals with a hang tag can park free at any meter on the street. There are also designated parking spaces on each level of the Austin Convention Center garage.
