If you’d rather ride than walk, you’ll find several unique, fun options for getting around downtown San Antonio. The River Taxi stops at various locations on the River Walk. One-way, one-day, and multiple-day passes are offered. The historic Streetcars, the Sightseer Special (Bus 7), and the B-Cycle Bike Share System are available to explore the downtown streets.
