Construction begins on new stations for VIA Prímo
San Antonio-based VIA Metropolitan Transit has broken ground on the stations for VIA Prímo, the agency’s signature bus rapid transit line for the Fredericksburg Road corridor.
The first of these stations will be built on Medical Drive at the University Hospital. There will be a total of eight stations along the corridor, and construction on the other seven will continue throughout 2012.
The stations will be built with a unique look to identify them as part of the VIA Prímo system. They will have platforms to allow for easier boarding on the bus rapid transit vehicles, and they will have real-time bus arrival displays to let riders know when the next vehicle will arrive. These stations will be used exclusively for VIA Prímo.
Construction on the VIA Prímo stations is underway, and the facilities will be ready for service once the line begins operations at the end of 2012.
