The Runner Schedules

Your ride to campus is just a click away, and it's free! VIA U-Pass begins fall 2019.

The Runner, UTSA’s transit system, provides service to and from on-campus parking lots and select nearby apartment complexes. Service is funded by the transportation fee paid by students each semester.

  • Inclement weather, rush hour traffic, and peak class times may affect schedules or seating availability.
  • Please allow 30-45 minutes before your scheduled class time for shuttle transportation, especially at the beginning of the semester.
  • For passenger safety and comfort, UTSA does not allow open food or drink containers on the shuttles. No smoking.

Fall & Spring Semesters

The Runner operates on class days during the fall and spring semesters Monday-Thursday from 6:45 am to 10:25 pm and Friday from 6:45 am to 5:15 pm. View our shuttle route map.

Shuttles typically run every 15 minutes. Please note that peak traffic times or inclement weather may impact service intervals.
