Well done, SA!
We are impressed with the infrastructure here. River Walk connects much of Downtown and extends to some surrounding areas. There are lots of bike paths. Like the bus, one bike path is easily accessed from where we are staying. It is 30 miles long bounded by the zoo and Brackenridge Park at the north and Mission Espada at the south. Much of it follows the SA river. It passes through a number of parks and is well equipped with picnic pavilions, water stops, and maps. Their Bcycle program is like CoGo bikes in Columbus, with many convenient sites. In addition to regular bus routes, there are three routes that cater to tourists, one for Downtown, one that takes you to all five of the missions, and a 'culture' route that connects museums, gardens, parks, and the zoo. And yes, you can take your bike on the bus. For a total of $12, the two of us have unlimited access to the buses for seven days. Cheaper than Uber, Lyft, and parking your car downtown for $18 while you have dinner! And, you can text the bus stop number where you are and get a return text with when your bus will arrive. So handy.
