San Antonio Transport
A great feature of visiting San Antonio is that the best of the
city can be navigated on foot for free, although in the peak summer
months temperatures can get dangerously hot for pedestrians.
Driving is not recommended as there are numerous one way streets,
congestions and insufficient public parking.
Visitors can also get around town in the charming streetcars, which are authentic reproductions of the same models that traveled these streets 50 years ago. There are four streetcar routes stopping at all the major tourist attractions, shopping districts and the Convention Centre. A one-day pass costs $4.
The River Taxi covers nine main locations along the River Walk. A one way route ticket costs $4, a 24-hour pass $10 or a 3-day pass $25. The Sightseer Special (Bus #7) runs throughout the day linking all the main tourist attractions. Metered taxis are also available throughout the city.
