Getting Around

Old-fashioned traipsing is definitely doable and recommended, as the most distant venues in the T/F footprint are less than a mile apart, or about a 15 minute walk. 

Pedal power will get you around the festival quickly and easily while avoiding parking headaches and keeping the air cleaner. There are lots of places to park your bike; look for the bike corrals at some of the busier downtown intersections. Need a bike? Rent one at Walt’s (573.886.9258) or Klunk (573.874.0090) or CyclExtreme (573.874.7044).

Riding on city buses (CoMo Connect) is easy and free during the four days of the Fest (Thursday-Sunday). During the Fest, there will also be two downtown routes: the shorter one stops near all T/F venues (total loop time: 10 minutes) and the other makes a wider loop that includes the University of Missouri and Stephens College campuses (total loop time: 30 minutes). 

Download the handy CoMo Connect app to track the bus in real time: available from iTunes or Google Play.


Hail a taxi from any of the taxi stands located throughout downtown. The locations are marked on the map on the inside back cover. Or call Taxi Terry's (573.441.1414).

If you're looking to see more of the city, or just wanting a more accommodating vehicle for your time here so you and your best film-watching buddies can stay together, consider a rental from Joe Machens Rental Department. They're offering 20% off* your rental when you bring in the T/F coupon found here.

There are several parking garages within walking distance of True/False venues, as well as ample on-street, metered parking throughout downtown (most meters have a two-hour limit). Meters are enforced from 9am-7pm Monday through Saturday. Parking in downtown city garages is free after 6pm on weekdays and all day Saturday and Sunday. The 10th & Cherry garage* is restricted to permit-only parking on the 2nd & 3rd levels; the restriction is only in place Thursday and Friday of the Fest. Hourly parking at the Short Street garage is available in metered parking spaces only during all of T/F 2016. Plan your parking strategy with this helpful info.

*NB: Due to safety concerns for pedestrians and motorists attending True/False Festival activities near the 10th & Cherry Garage, the Parking Utility will be closing the east, Hitt Street, entrance/exit to the garage starting at 3pm onThursday, the 3rd of March. The closure will be in effect until Sunday, the 6th of March, at 9am. All vehicles will enter and exit the garage off of the west, 10th Street, side.
