    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.

    VIA’s new Primo 100 route will pass through the downtown lineup area to provide transfer opportunities for riders. Going inbound, Primo service will pass through several minutes before the lineup times of 10:30 p.m., 11:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m.

    Going outbound, Primo service will pass through several minutes after the other lineup buses have departed. As a courtesy during the late night period, VIA Primo will stop at local bus stops as well as Primo stations on Fredericksburg Road between Babcock Station and Louis Pasteur Drive.

    There’s no place like Downtown San Antonio and no better way to explore it than with VIA. Several bus routes travel through Downtown from early in the morning to late at night. VIVA is a new service line from VIA Metropolitan Transit that takes you to the most-visited sites and attractions in the heart of San Antonio. Three distinct VIVA routes connect riders with historic places, opportunities to learn and discover, classic and contemporary art, and popular dining and entertainment spots. There’s something for everyone on VIVA, including stops at the San Antonio Missions World Heritage Site, the Alamo, King William Historic District, Southtown, Downtown, Market Square, the River Walk, Pearl, and the South Broadway corridor. VIA’s Prímo 100 also connects to the downtown area and runs from 4:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m., daily.
