ViaInfo.net – San Antonio TX Metropolitan Transit
Of great use both for San Antonio locals and visitors, this site is home for the public bus service in that Texan city, and is very easy to use, regardless of whether you want to plan your trip or learn about the advantages of riding the bus to work instead of your own car. ViaInfo.
net features schedules and fare information, and a variety of interactive maps in which users can see different information, like bus stops, bus routes, attraction or public services. I was happy to see that a Quick Trip feature is available through the site, which allows users to indicate where they’re at and where they’re headed, and get instant information on what line they should take and where to catch the bus. One of the most effective marketing tactics of the site is the cost calculator, which lets users learn how much they can save in fuel and parking costs by riding the bus or using other of VIA’s services. Individuals and corporate clients can buy short or long-term bus passes through the site, and the latter can learn about the tax benefits of doing so by taking a look at the Corporate area of ViaInfo.net. Concerned about costs or the environment but not willing to take the bus? Don’t be anymore: you can learn about other car pooling services Via has to offer by visiting the site, but in order to receive day or night service you have to call in (will they consider allowing people to book or reserve trips online?).
