Be prepared, taxis can be hard to come by in Austin during SXSW. It’s probably easiest to ask the concierge at your hotel to call you a cab. From the theaters, you can try calling American Yellow Checker cab at 512.452.9999. If you can secure one, fares are fairly inexpensive. A cab from the Austin Convention Center to the Paramount Theatre normally costs around $6. For a cab from the Austin Convention Center to the Topfer Theatre at ZACH, the fare will be closer to $8, without heavy traffic. You should also consider other alternatives like the SXSW Festival Shuttles, pedicabs, bikes and walking!
