VIA Metropolitan Transit logoFor the frugal travelers among you, here’s a deal that you won’t want to miss! For $4, you may purchase a one-day VIA bus pass that’ll chauffeur you from one San Antonio hot spot to another.

Your bus driver’s name might not be James/Jamie, but just ask him/her to let you off at the next stop. Here are the destinations along VIA’s #7 Sightseer Special route, which begins on Market at Presa (downtown) headed north or Funston near North New Braunfels (Botanical Garden) headed south:

La Villita

The Alamo

San Antonio Children’s Museum

San Antonio Museum of Art

Brackenridge Park

Japanese Tea Gardens (Sunken Gardens)

San Antonio Zoo and Aquarium

Trinity University

University of the Incarnate Word

Central Market

Witte Museum/South Texas Heritage Center

Botanical Garden

You’ll be hard pressed to visit all 10 places in one day, but why not give it a try? The downtown jump-on point is just a few blocks from the Convention Center, so for those of you who are in San Antonio without a car, VIA’s #7 Sightseer Special is the way to go. The one-day pass is also good for unlimited rides on all regular buses, express buses and streetcars. You may purchase your one-day pass on VIA’s online store.

Sounds like a winner –
Reminds me of the old commercial . . . “and leave the driving to us”
What was that for?

Exactly! No muss. No fuss. I remember that commercial’s slogan, too, but I’ll be darned if I can remember what company it was promoting! Thanks for reading/commenting. Cheers, Denise F.
