Planning for the future and improving transit today.

VIA SmartMove is a set of important initiatives developed from VIA's Long Range Comprehensive Transportation Plan that will transform San Antonio through multimodal solutions. Under the SmartMove capital plan we will develop new transit facilities at the Centro Plaza, the Robert Thompson Transit Center, Brooks City-Base, and in the Stone Oak area. New bus shelters will be added throughout the area and we will advance into planning new SmartMove projects along major corridors including Military Drive, Zarzamora Street, IH-35, IH-10 and SH 151.

SmartMove 2040 Backup

SmartMove 2040 is the community-driven process by which VIA will develop its Long Range Plan (2040 Plan) through the year 2040. The 2040 Plan will be the guiding document for VIA’s long-term capital investments and operations and will be developed over time with data analysis and significant input from the general public, VIA’s customers, and key stakeholders.  The 2040 Plan will build off of the substantial effort completed from 2009-2011 that resulted in the 2035 Long Range Comprehensive Transportation Plan, which outlined a vision for the future of VIA.

The 2040 Plan will further define the high-capacity network while considering a more regional context.  The 2040 Plan will identify station areas along high-capacity routes, suggest land-uses for station areas, and identify the best configuration for underlying bus services in relation to high-capacity services.  Concurrent to the 2040 Plan development, the City of San Antonio will be coordinating closely with VIA as they develop a Comprehensive Plan and Strategic Multimodal Transportation Plan.
