(Nov. 5, 2005)--VIA Metropolitan Transit begins new service routes Monday, Nov. 7, and the UTSA 1604 and Downtown campuses will benefit from the additional service.
The new service will add express route 93 to the current VIA express route 94. Like route 94, the new route will provide bus service between the UTSA 1604 and Downtown campuses. Additionally, through a continuing agreement with VIA, UTSA students, faculty and staff can ride VIA's express routes 93 and 94 free by showing a valid UTSACard.
