Days after San Antonio City Council updated its scooter regulations, another major operator is set to launch.

Following close behind rival ride-hailing company Uber, Lyft will release its dockless electric scooters on Wednesday. The company is permitted to operate as many as 2,000 scooters in the city. Lyft applied last month for a permit to participate in the City of San Antonio’s six-month pilot program to test regulations for the nascent dockless vehicle industry – just before the City shut the door on new applicants.

The City is now up to 14,100 permitted dockless vehicles – 12,100 scooters and 2,000 e-bikes – and seven authorized operators: Bird, Lime, Razor, Blue Duck Scooters, Uber-owned Jump, Lyft, and Spin. San Francisco-based Spin has a permit for 500 scooters but has yet to announce a launch date.

Lyft will hold a press conference Wednesday to kick off its San Antonio scooter operations and unveil scooter docking stations. In a January interview with TechCrunch, Lyft officials said riders would not be required to dock the scooters after use.

The City has installed several dockless vehicle parking zones in the urban core. It recommends, but does not mandate, users park their scooters at the end of their ride in one of the chalk-outlined designated areas on the sidewalk, but only a handful of zones have been created in high-traffic areas in downtown San Antonio. In areas where the sidewalk is too narrow to accommodate sidewalk parking zones, City staff plans to create several so-called parking corrals for e-scooters and e-bikes – located on the street in place of on-street parking spots.

This is a comparison of Quarter 3 (July, August, September) 2017 vs 2018 passengers stats of where people fly to/from SAT. These numbers are PDEW (Passengers Daily Each Way) to see which routes are growing/shrinking. Divide the number by 2, as its counts passengers flying DFW-SAT and SAT-DFW each day. These numbers are passengers final destinations, do not include connections ie if someone flies SAT-DFW-DCA, it does not count towards the passenger count of SAT-DFW, only SAT-DCA. To save time, I only compared airports with at least 100 PDEW to/from SAT.

San Antonio Zoo announces light rail train connecting San Antonio and Austin

by San Antonio Zoo Monday, April 1st 2019

SAN ANTONIO — The Eagle Train ride in Brackenridge Park has delighted riders and moved visitors throughout Brackenridge Park since 1956. The train at Brackenridge Park was famously (or infamously) robbed on July 18, 1970 after nearly 50 years with no train robberies prior in the country. The robbery became known as the Great (Little) Train Robbery and was the last known train robbery in the state. Even this didn’t slow down the ride and now San Antonio Zoo has big and bold plans to expand this light rail to Austin.

San Antonio Zoo operates three trains at Brackenridge Park which gives the zoo the opportunity to increase ridership and minimize wait times to get on a train to Austin. While two of the trains were built in the 1980’s and need replacing, the zoo is hopeful that through donations and increased ridership with a new route to Austin that acquiring new trains is feasible.

The trains travel at a comfortable five miles per hour which makes this new light rail ride to Austin a pleasant 17-hour trip. The planned route would begin in Brackenridge Park and end at the steps of the Texas State Capitol before returning to San Antonio.

Well, one of the maps shows the "Municipal Auditorium" and the old convention center layout so I'm gonna say yes.

It seems Allegiant is thinking about flying to Mexico and one of the from cities is San Antonio.

1 More specifically, under both its certificate and exemption applications, Allegiant requests authority to engage in (1) scheduled foreign air transportation of persons, property and mail (a) from a point or points in the United States to a point or points in Mexico, (b) from Dallas/Fort Worth and San Antonio to Mexico City, Toluca, and Acapulco, and beyond to points in Panama and beyond, (c) from New York, Washington, Baltimore, Los Angeles, and Houston, to Mexico City and Toluca, and beyond to a point or points in Central and/or South America, and (d) from a point or points in the United States, via an intermediate point or points, to a point or points in Mexico, and beyond, as mutually agreed in writing by the aeronautical authorities of the U.S. and Mexico; and (2) scheduled foreign air transportation of property and mail (a) from a point or points in the United States, via an intermediate point or points, to a point or points in Mexico, and beyond, and (b) from a point or points in Mexico to any point.

San Antonio International Airport sets new High Mark for March passengers

Quote:
San Antonio International Airport’s two terminals handled more than 907,000 passengers in March — a record for the month and a 7% gain over the same period a year ago.

The airport is three months shy of extending its string of consecutive monthly passenger records to three years.

I flew into and out of SAT a couple weeks ago... Terminal A was cram packed! And for the first time, the flight was cheaper than flying into Austin which is why I chose SAT... my folks live in NB so I'm always shopping between ABIA and SAT.

Interesting. A few years ago San Antonio had direct service to Toluca, but that was discontinued (can't remember which carrier, I think it was one of the low cost Mexican oens). But with the new higher speed rail commuter service between CDMX and Toluca and the cancellation of the new Mexico City airport by AMLO, perhaps there's more demand now for SAT-TLC.
