Texas Week

September 9, 2011| VIA Transit Plans

Video duration: 28:30

VIA has plans to build a streetcar line downtown, and the county has agreed to contribute $55 million. The city has not yet made the same financial commitment, and some have questions about whether the project is worth it. There are also political entanglements amid the questions of feasibility. We look at the future of public transportation in San Antonio and the challenges it faces.
