Parsons Corporation was selected by VIA Metropolitan Transit Authority (VIA) to complete final design of the Advanced Rapid Transit (ART) program for the VIA Rapid Green Line in San Antonio, Texas. The $20 million, five-year contract represents new work for the company.

The project, with an estimated capital cost of more than $400 million, is receiving funding from a variety of sources, including the Federal Transportation Administration (FTA) New Starts Capital Improvement Grant (CIG) as well as local funding sources.

The 12-mile VIA Rapid Green Line will include 26 stations and connect major employment and residential centers, including the San Antonio International Airport. ART systems deliver fast, frequent, reliable public transit by dedicating bus lanes outside of regular traffic, utilizing bus-friendly traffic signals, and offering off-board fare collection options for faster boarding.
