VIA Announces Rerouted Bus Schedules for Fiesta Parades

In anticipation of the upcoming Fiesta celebrations, VIA Metropolitan Transit has announced temporary changes to bus schedules and routes to accommodate the Battle of Flowers Parade and the Fiesta Flambeau Parade.

During the Battle of Flowers Parade on Friday, April 26, from 3 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the Fiesta Flambeau Parade on Saturday, April 27, from 2 p.m. to 12:45 a.m., VIA buses will be unable to travel through downtown and will be detoured accordingly.

Passengers are advised not to refer to printed bus schedules on these days, as they may not reflect the temporary changes. Instead, schedule information can be accessed through VIA’s online trip planner or by texting the 5-digit stop number to 52020.

To facilitate transfers between routes, VIA has established temporary passenger locations. However, passengers should note that bus service may not run as frequently or as late as usual during these hours.

VIA Metropolitan Transit encourages passengers to plan their journeys ahead of time and utilize alternative transportation options if necessary. For real-time updates and additional information, passengers can visit VIA’s website or contact VIA customer service.

As San Antonio gears up for the vibrant Fiesta celebrations, VIA remains committed to providing safe and efficient transportation for all residents and visitors.
