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

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.

Mom, You’ll enjoy the Sightseer Special! You can even take a bus from our house to meet up with the #7…all for $4. How great is that? Cheers, DF
