VIA Metropolitan Transit has partnered with the San Antonio Luminaria Contemporary Arts Festival to provide convenient travel options to Hemisfair for festival attendees.

VIA will operate longer hours for VIVA centro (Route 301) and VIVA culture (Route 11) to the event grounds on Saturday, November 9, to accommodate events in the Hemisfair District, where attendees can enjoy new works in performance, music, literature, dance, visual arts and more. For Saturday’s Luminaria events, the VIVA extended schedule will operate until 12:30 a.m. to connect festival-goers with artwork and performances that explore the identity, history, people, land and culture of San Antonio.

Regular line service fares will apply for the extended service, and all valid fare media will be accepted. The best value is with a VIA Day Pass that provides unlimited rides on the day of purchase for just $2.75. Passes can be purchased in advance, on the bus, or through the goMobile app.

VIA also has numerous routes that serve the Hemisfair area along Market Street, Alamo Street, and Cesar E. Chavez Boulevard. For more information regarding these routes, please visit VIA’s Trip Planning page or call (210) 362-2020. For details on the event, visit
