[ Friday is #ATXDetourDay ]

Austin Zilkerpark Dreamstime 775x515With Friday, March 9th being the 1st day / Kick off of SXSW 2018 in ATX, the city is declaring Friday to also be #ATXDetourDay.  To help alleviate some of the traffic in and around downtown ATX, we’re being asked to find another way to work without getting on the roads at the same time w/ everyone else. It’s a #1THING that could keep continuing to make ATX even better, but we’ll take it day by day.

Travel suggestions & alternatives for #ATXDetourDay 

  • Telework. Work from an alternative worksite
  • Flex work hours. If your employment situation allows it, work a non-traditional schedule, such as 7 a.m.-4 p.m. instead of 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
  • Compress your work week. Cut your commute by working fewer days with more hours
  • Bike. Knock out multiple goals at once by incorporating exercise into your commute.
  • Take public transit. Ride the bus or train to work.   Capital Metro’s schedules and trip planner for more information.  Buy tickets from the Capital Metro app.
  • Walk. Find ways to add some legwork to your trip if you can.
  • Carpool. Ride together with coworkers
  • Vanpool. For groups of five or more people, vanpools are a great shared transportation option.
  • Bikepool. Join a cycling group to make your commute more social and active.
