PTS transforms San Antonio Garage into art exhibit space for UT Austin’s TEDx event

March 25, 2021

In an effort unique to Parking and Transportation Services (PTS), the parking division of the department supported this year’s TEDxUTAustin event held March 5 through 6, 2021. TEDxUTAustin is an independently organized and student-led annual event that draws upon the university’s students, faculty and staff to host inspiring talks and exhibit displays in the spirit of TED Talks. As in past years, the purpose of the 2021 event was to share ideas, inspire creativity and create community, but with the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s event had to be mostly remote. With support from PTS, TEDxUTAustin was able to reach more than 1,000 visitors to the organization’s Hear+Now drive-thru art exhibit.
