College Students Enrolled for Spring Semester to Enjoy Unlimited VIA Service
VIA’s U-Pass program offers college students, faculty, and staff free trip options
SAN ANTONIO (Dec. 19, 2019) – Students, faculty and staff at participating local colleges and universities can enjoy a major perk for their spring schedules—free, unlimited access to bus service anywhere in the VIA service area with the VIA U-Pass.
Through their schools’ partnerships with the VIA U-Pass program, over 90,000 students, faculty, and staff members at the University of Texas at San Antonio and all Alamo Colleges, as well as students enrolled at Our Lady of the Lake University and the University of the Incarnate Word, have free access to unlimited trips on regular bus service throughout the school year, including spring, summer, and fall sessions. Local tech incubator CodeUp has also signed up to provide U-Pass benefits, signaling a program expansion and even more users who can ride fare-free.
The VIA U-Pass is designed to provide convenient access to public transportation and help address the challenges of growing student populations with limited and often expensive parking options on or near campus. VIA offers efficient, affordable travel options and provides modern passenger perks like free 4G LTE Wi-Fi on all its buses, instant access to the Bexar BiblioTech e-library for all riders, and several frequent and direct routes.
