VIA proposes temporary changes to service amid labor scarcity, officials say

SAN ANTONIO – VIA is wanting to make temporary service changes to meet the demand within the San Antonio space regardless of a labor scarcity.

The transit company proposed service changes to bus schedules and routes throughout a board work session on Tuesday.

VIA officials say the service changes would impression the fixed-route bus frequency by making a two- to five-minute distinction on most affected routes. Lower demand routes may see a 20- to 30-minute distinction.

Other route changes are deliberate due to building and exterior elements, VIA mentioned. VIAtrans and VIA Link service won’t be affected.

VIA President and CEO Jeffrey C. Arndt mentioned the impacts of the pandemic have impacted transportation suppliers all through the nation.

“These temporary changes will allow us to provide the best quality and most balanced service possible at this time, and as we keep moving toward recovery,” Arndt mentioned.

The changes could have to be accredited on the VIA Board of Trustees meeting on Sept. 28.


If accredited, the changes will go into have an effect on starting Oct. 25, VIA officials mentioned.

VIA is internet hosting a free digital phone city corridor on Thursday to talk about the proposed changes to service. The occasion will start at 7 p.m., and people taken with becoming a member of the occasion can register here. The city corridor will even be streamed on their Facebook page.
