VIA Link

VIA Link Mainland Zone

VIA Link is an on-demand ride-sharing program, similar to Uber or Lyft, which allows customers to request a VIA Link passenger van to come to their location on-campus and pick them up for a ride to anywhere within the VIA Link Mainland Zone. Best of all, this convenient service is FREE for UTSA students and employees with their VIA U-Pass.

The VIA Link Mainland Zone covers a wide array of retail and dining locations to which Roadrunners—especially on-campus residents—can now enjoy easy, on-demand access. VIA Link will drop you off at nearby drop zones, minutes within walking distance to various locations in the Mainland Zone. These locations include:

Convenient shopping in the Bandera/1604 area

• Dining at dozens of your favorite restaurants

• Outdoor parks with hiking and biking trails, such as O.P. Schnabel Park

• Entertainment such as the Silverado Theater
