Here are the shuttle options available for the 2022 US F1 Grand Prix at COTA


Shuttles are scheduled to pick up attendees at three different locations in Austin for the duration of the event. Check the details.

AUSTIN, Texas — With the United States Grand Prix Formula 1 race coming in October, Circuit of the Americas encourages ticket holders to book shuttles to the event if they don’t already have a parking pass.

Shuttles will pick up attendees from various locations in Austin and drop them off at dedicated COTA bus-only areas. Three options are available.

Pickup locations include downtown Austin at Waterloo Park, Travis County Exposition Center, and Barton Creek Square Mall.

Here is a breakdown of the details and cost for each pickup location:

Downtown: Waterloo Park

  • Round trip price: $130 for a three-day weekend pass or $45 per day with advance purchase
  • Same day: $55 per person per day

COTA said this shuttle route is the closest drop-off point to the circuit entrance available. The Waterloo Park Shuttle Center is the only shuttle with direct drop-off and pick-up at the gates of the Grand Plaza. Attendees can park their car for $20 a day in garages between Trinity and San Jacinto.

Northeast Austin: Travis County Exposition Center

  • Round trip price: $100 for a three-day weekend pass or $35 per day with advance purchase
  • Same day: $45 per person per day

Located near the intersections of Interstate 290/US 183 and Tollway 130, the Travis County Expo Center shuttle hub is free parking. Participants are requested to enter and exit this facility at “Gate 1” located off Decker Lane.

Southwest Austin: Barton Creek Square Mall

  • Round trip price: $45 per day with advance purchase
  • Same day: $55 per person per day

This shuttle will only be available on Saturday and Sunday.

Located near the intersection of Loop 1 and Highway 360, the Barton Creek Square Mall shuttle hub is free parking. Shuttle pickup and drop-off is located near JCPenney. This hub is not available on the Friday of the race weekend.

COTA said Expo Center and Mall shuttles drop off and pick up at the McAngus Road Depot. The depot is a short tram ride or walk from the gates of the Grand Plaza.

Here is a map of the drop off locations:

For carpooling

COTA Boulevard will be restricted to authorized vehicles and buses only. All rideshare services will operate from the Del Valle High School parking lot and will only be accessible by a COTA shuttle. Carpool vehicles will not be permitted on McAngus Road or COTA Boulevard during race weekend.

Earlier this year, COTA pledged to improve shuttle service after last-minute cancellations in 2021 left fans disappointed and the venue rushed to work with local school districts for bus drivers. COTA cited labor shortages and unexpected cancellations for last year’s difficulties.

The site said it was working with a new shuttle provider this time around and had an improved traffic plan to alleviate some of the issues.

You can find shuttle tickets online here. The United States Grand Prix will take place from October 21-23, 2022.
