Each year, the Austin PRIDE Parade keeps getting bigger and better, drawing a record number of parade participants and spectators to the streets of downtown Austin, which makes it a ton of fun — unless you have to find a place to park!
MAKE IT A TRANSIT ADVENTURE. The Smart Trips team is providing FREE Capital Metro Day Passes so you can spend more time enjoying the Austin PRIDE Parade and less time circling around 4th Street. Are you ready to #TryTransit? Put on your best cirque-inspired ensemble, join us at The Triangle, and #RidewithPride down to the parade!
6:50 PM | MEET-UP | Be on the look out for the Smart Trips team in front of the Galaxy Cafe – Triangle. Heck, we wouldn’t blame you if you got to The Triangle a little early to grab a bite or a beer somewhere….
