(Aug. 24, 2011)--As alternatives to buying a parking permit, there are many low-cost and even free options for commuting to UTSA. These alternatives can help UTSA students, faculty and staff save money and energy -- and avoid hunting for a parking space.

UTSA students can ride free on the UTSA shuttles from nine apartment complexes (see the list below) near the UTSA Main Campus. Because there is lots of traffic as the semester gets underway, it's important to allow extra time to arrive at your campus destination.

  • VIA offers a Student Semester Pass ($35 per semester) and monthly passes ($30 for faculty and staff) all including the VIA Bike and Ride program (bike racks on the buses). For details, visit VIA Metropolitan Transit website.
  • Additionally, student, faculty and staff commuters can save money with rideshare and carpooling, a motorcycle permit, daily UTSA parking permits and short-term paid parking.
  • The alternative is a UTSA parking permit. If you choose to park on campus, you must buy a parking permit and park in the appropriate space. A variety of permits are available to UTSA faculty, staff and students. Visit the ASAP information system website to review options and purchase an annual parking permit.
  • Read more about alternative options and other information at the UTSA Parking website.

For the 2011-2012 academic year, UTSA shuttles will serve these apartment complexes near the UTSA Main Campus:

  • Hill Country Place
  • Broadstone Ranch
  • The Highlands
  • The Outpost
  • Avalon Place
  • The Reserve
  • The Villas @ Babcock

Football standouts make Roadrunner history

For Ashaad Mabry and Triston Wade, football is not just a passing fancy. Both players were part of the UTSA football program almost from the beginning. When UTSA opens the 2015 season Thursday at Arizona, it will be the first time the Roadrunners take the field without them. But Mabry and Wade will still be playing football; their uniforms will just be a different color.

Mabry, a defensive tackle from San Antonio's MacArthur High School, was an honorable mention All-Conference USA selection his final two seasons as a Roadrunner and second among the team's defensive linemen with 49 tackles last year. Wade, a defensive back from Tyler, was the most decorated player in school history. He was a semifinalist for the 2014 Jim Thorpe Award – for the nation's top defensive back – a three-time all-conference honoree and two-year team captain who set a school record of 293 tackles in his career. Both men had outstanding college careers that allowed them to make UTSA history.

Did you know? Mabry and Wade both agreed to terms as undrafted free agents with the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks, respectively, becoming the first UTSA players to move to the professional ranks.
