You must use this PARKING PERMIT for both days at BSides Austin. Download and PRINT, then place it in plain view on your dashboard.
Without this parking permit on your dash you will get a ticket.
We have been advised that UT security is very diligent about monitoring the parking when there is a big event like ours. In fact, they have also been known to ticket if you have a tire on a parking space line or on any grass.
* We have no power to help you get out of a ticket if you get one.
You can avoid the whole parking mess:
The Austin MetroRapid bus stop is located on Exploration Way on the west side of the Commons Building and offers transit daily along a 15-mile route through Austin. For more information, please see: Cap Metro Route 803.
