San Antonio urging Bad Bunny fans to hop onto Park & Ride VIA buses to avoid traffic disaster

The Alamodome will open its doors for the show around 5:30 p.m., the same time many downtown workers start the commute home.

Tickets don't come much hotter than those for Wednesday's Bad Bunny concert at the Alamodome.

Case in point: the City of San Antonio has opened up alternate parking and transportation options for the Latin hip-hop superstar's performance so it can avert a downtown traffic nightmare.

The Bad Bunny show is expected to draw more than 50,000 fans, and stadium doors are set to open around 5:30 p.m. Yes, that's the same time many downtown workers start the commute home.

To stave off the gridlock, the AT&T Center is letting VIA Metropolitan Transit use its parking lots as a Park & Ride location. Service will begin at 5 p.m., and for $1.30 each way, Bad Bunny fans can hop onto a bus destined for the Alamodome at two locations:
  • AT&T Center, 1 AT&T Center Parkway
  • Crossroads Park & Ride, 151 Crossroads Blvd.
More information on the service is available online.
