VIA dropping 15-cent fare to make service more affordable for customers
SAN ANTONIO (Oct. 7, 2019) — VIA Metropolitan Transit is eliminating the 15-cent fare for transfers and making it more affordable to choose and use transit. The change is effective Monday, Nov. 4, 2019, as part of VIA’s fiscal year 2020 budget that will deliver more service and improvements throughout the system without a fare increase.
“Our budget reflects VIA’s top priorities of providing reliable and affordable public transportation that people in our community can count on—and always making fiscally-responsible investments to get it done,” VIA President/CEO Jeff Arndt said. “Dropping the transfer fares will make it easier for our customers to plan their trips and take their journeys with us.”
VIA riders who pay using the goMobile app will see a reduction in the cost of the 2.5-Hour Pass to $1.30 to account for the free transfer. For questions about the new free transfers, call our VIA Go Line at (210) 362-2020.
