SAN ANTONIO (Jan. 26, 2018) — On Friday, VIA Metropolitan Transit’s VIVA missions (40) route extended service to Mission Espada, following completion of a construction project in the area. Previously, the VIVA missions route traveled to four of the five mission sites. The route now serves the San Antonio Missions  World Heritage Site, from the Alamo to Mission San Juan.

In June 2016, VIA Metropolitan Transit launched its VIVA service line with three distinct routes —VIVA culture (11), VIVA missions (40), and VIVA centro (301) — which connect riders with historic places, classic and contemporary art, popular dining and entertainment spots, and opportunities to learn and discover in the heart of San Antonio.

VIVA runs seven days a week, with extended hours and frequent service. Standard bus fares will apply. The best value for riders is a VIA Day Pass, which provides unlimited rides, all day for $2.75. Visit for complete schedule information and locations served by VIVA.
