All About Primo  English | Spanish

Primo uses modern rubber-tire, high capacity vehicles; improved fare collection systems, and controlled traffic signals to move riders more efficiently. Boarding take place at stations rather than bus stops. In the end, riders using this premier transit service will get to their destinations faster.

VIA's BRT line, called VIA Primo, runs along Fredericksburg Road traveling from the University of Texas at San Antonio 1604 campus to the Medical Center Transit Center and on to downtown San Antonio.
