At 10:30 p.m., 11:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. buses depart the locations shown on this map of downtown (not necessarily in the order listed).

For the 12:30 a.m. lineup, the buses will not depart until all lineup service buses have arrived and riders have had a chance to transfer to other buses. Because several buses may line up behind each other, it is important to look for your bus anywhere along the block. VIA supervisors and bus operators will be happy to help you locate the bus you need.

Prímo 100 uses Market and Commerce Streets traversing Downtown and does not pass the line-up staging areas (Travis Park). Prímo 100 inbound service arrives downtown several minutes before the line-up times of 10:30 p.m, 11:30 p.m., and 12:30 a.m. with connections possible at Centro Plaza and the assigned Prímo 100 bus stop locations on Dolorosa/Market Street.

Prímo 100 outbound service will pass through several minutes after the line-up buses have departed with connections possible on the assigned Prímo 100 bus stop locations on Commerce and at Centro Plaza.
