UTSA Game Day Transportation
Printable Service Flyer
Option 1: Park & Ride
Inexpensive and convenient transportation to and from the Alamodome will be provided
on game days from three park and ride locations. Service to the Alamodome will begin
three hours before kickoff. The last returning
bus will depart from the Alamodome 45 minutes after the official end of the game.
For departures from UTSA, parking will be available on Saturdays in any unmarked
space in Lot 5.
Special event tokens from any VIA location will cost $2.50 each way ($5 round trip),
but UTSA students may purchase tokens at a student rate of $1.25 each way ($2.50
round trip)! A current UTSA Student ID is required to receive the student rate and must be displayed when boarding.
VIA daily, monthly and semester bus passes ARE NOT valid for special event service.
Special event tokens may be purchased in advance at the University Center on the
Main Campus, on VIA’s website or at all VIA Information Centers. While we suggest
buying the tokens in advance, tokens will also be available at the park and ride
locations on game days.
Option 2: Regular VIA Service from the Downtown Campus
VIA’s regular Yellow Streetcar route provides service between the Downtown UTSA
Campus and the Alamodome from a VIA stop near Frio and Ceasar Chavez.
In addition, the VIA UTSA Campus Downtown Alamodome Express provides service from
a stop on Buena Vista at lot D-1. Look for VIA’s temporary bus stop signage and
Both services run approximately every ten minutes. (note: VIA runs regular buses
instead of streetcars on the Yellow Streetcar route)
The cost of the Yellow Streetcar route is $1.10 each way, but UTSA students may
board at a student rate of $.55 each way! A current UTSA Student ID is required
to receive the student rate. Please have exact fare ready as the bus operators do
not provide change. VIA daily, monthly and semester bus passes ARE valid for the
Yellow Streetcar route.
Parking will be available on Saturdays in any unmarked spaces at the Downtown
Campus in Lots D3 and D4 under IH 35 (see map).
Passengers may bring drinks on the bus but they must be in sealable containers.
Food items and alcoholic beverages are not allowed.
