Local nonprofit SA2020 tracks the city's progress in various cause areas to improve conditions within San Antonio communities. 

Targeting eleven cause areas, its latest report uses local data to measure whether goals have been met or are on track to be met by 2020. Of the 61 primary indicators, 70 percent are seeing progress, according to SA2020.

The wait time for a bus will be shorter for some commuters as VIA Metropolitan Transit increases the frequency of routes throughout San Antonio.

Despite the San Antonio City Council's decision to delay a vote for additional funding last November and a rapidly growing population to serve, VIA Metropolitan Transit continues to push forward with innovative developments and outreach efforts. 

After months of development, San Antonio's VIA Metropolitan Transit released its new mobile app for smartphones today. It's called goMobile and they hope it will draw new riders and help existing ones.

There is an element of outreach for the new goMobile app. San Antonio is one of the most economically segregated cities in the country, and many of VIA's riders are low income. 

VIA Vice President of Technology Steve Young says that their ridership is increasingly connected though.
