Getting Around SXSW: Bird and Yelp’s Guide to Great Austin Businesses

Want to make the most of your SXSW festival experience? 

Yelp and Bird are pairing up to help you do just that. With the help of Yelp’s local Austin Elite members, we’ve put together a guide to some of the city’s tastiest and most unique spots. 

From the sandwich and burger wizardry of Golden Tiger to the luxurious, late night delicacies of Velvet Taco, there’s something for every festival-goer to enjoy here. And to help you experience it all in sustainable style, Bird is offering a discount code on our fleet of industry-leading Bird micro-EVs in Austin. 

Just enter the code UNLOCKAUSTIN to receive a free unlock* during the festival. 

Supporting Local Businesses With Yelp

Bird’s most recent collaboration with Yelp comes after our two teams worked together to help Super Bowl fans explore and experience local Los Angeles businesses.

The series of initiatives was inspired by a 2021 study from Emory University’s Goizueta School of Business demonstrating the positive impact shared e-scooters like Bird have on incremental spending at local shops, restaurants and cafes. 

Bird is committed to working with our 350+ partner cities worldwide to enhance the economic benefits that our vehicles bring to local businesses. Last year, Bird riders added an estimated $100 million to local economies through incremental spending alone.
