VIA Metropolitan Transit announces a new feature to its popular goMobile+ app that offers customers another convenient option to pay for their trips using cash at more than 200 retail locations in San Antonio.

The new cash-loading option enhances the usability of VIA goMobile+ for customers who do not have a credit card or bank account, or who prefer to pay with cash rather than through an online transaction. Customers can choose to add funds to the account balance in the app using cash at many locations, including CVS, Walgreens, 7-Eleven, Dollar General, and Family Dollar stores.

“VIA is committed to offering a variety of convenient payment options and modern technology to our customers,” VIA President/CEO Jeffrey C. Arndt said. “We will continue to explore and provide the best and latest technology platforms that will enhance our customers experience to plan and pay for multi-modal trips in our service area. By allowing the use of credit card or cash payments, we are offering more solutions to help connect our customers with work, school, shopping and more.”

The new feature also greatly expands important digital touchless ticketing to a broader section of VIA’s riders, providing safer ticketing for them and VIA staff while allowing for faster boarding at the bus stop.

The VIA goMobile+ app is VIA’s official mobile ticketing and trip-planning app and can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play. More information on how to use the app and all of its features is available at
