Getting Here

The Big 5G Event and Informa Tech encourages all attendees to consider the impact of their mode of transportation to and from the venue. The Austin Convention Center is conveniently located in the centre of it all. North, South, East, or West, it’s easy to get to no matter where you are based in the city. 

Using the public MetroRail

Capital Metro’s MetroRail stops right next to the Austin Convention Center. Alleviate the pressures of traffic, and leave your car behind. The MetroRail will take you to our venue in a smooth, timely manner. Just sit back and enjoy the ride.  


Alternative Fuel Vehicle Parking

In the Brazos St. Parking Garage, there are 30 preferred parking spaces for hybrid, electric, biodiesel, or flex-fuel vehicles, including three Austin Energy charging stations. These spaces are available to you all throughout the garage close to the elevators. 

Cycling to the venue?

Arriving on two wheels? Lock up your bicycle against one of the 124 racks. They are all along the sidewalks surrounding our venue, with the highest concentration down 4th St. between Red River and Trinity. Fifty-two individual stands and 33 U-shaped steel tubes make up the cluster on 4th St. 

Rent a bicycle

Walking is nice, but sometimes it is not fast enough. In that case, grab a bicycle from one of the docking stations around our venue. With a simple transaction, you can borrow a bicycle and zip off to where you need to be.
