San Antonio Tourist Bus route & stops

Some of the most recommended stops on the route are The Alamo, the most famous building in Texas; the magnificent Cathedral of San Fernando, one of the oldest cathedrals in the United States; the HemisFair Park and the Tower of the Americas, both built for the 1968 World Fair.

How does it work?

Your ticket will be valid for 24 or 48 consecutive hours from the time of first use, depending which option you have selected. So, for example, if you first use a 48-hour ticket on a Monday at 3 pm, it will be valid until the Wednesday at 3 pm.

During this time, you can hop on and hop off the buses as many times as you'd like at any of the stops along the route, allowing you to get to know the city's sights at your own pace. Go shopping at the Rivercenter Mall; stroll the streets of the Pearl Brewery neighbourhood, a cultural haven and a favourite of local and visiting foodies; or head to the banks of the San Antonio River to enjoy a traditional boat trip.
