The Austin Parks and Recreation Department (PARD) has teamed up with Capital Metro, Austin Transportation, and Austin Parks Foundation (APF) to help people "Ride and Save" at Zilker Metropolitan Park. To encourage community members to take the bus to Zilker, weekend riders of MetroBus Route 30 who get off at one of the Zilker stops on Barton Springs Road will receive a coupon for $2 off the entry fee to Barton Springs Pool or Zilker Botanical Garden. This coupon is available thanks to a generous $10,000 contribution from APF.
This coupon is in connection with Cap Metro's added service on MetroBus Route 30, which directly serves Zilker Park, increasing frequency of buses to better than every 20 minutes on Saturdays and Sundays while the promotion is in effect.
Riders who receive the coupon at Barton Springs Pool or Zilker Botanical Garden should be aware of the following:
Coupons will expire after August 18, 2019.
Coupons will only be distributed on Saturday and Sunday but may be used any time before August 18, 2019.
Each coupon can be used at one location: Barton Springs or Zilker Botanical Garden.
If using a coupon, the remaining amount of the entry fee must be paid in cash. Barton Springs Pool pay stations cannot be used in conjunction with the coupon.
Barton Springs Pool does not allow food, alcohol, glass, coolers, Frisbees, footballs, soccer balls or other hard balls. These items should be left at home or disposed of before entering the pool area.
