    Hi guys, I need a little bit of help here. My friend and I are planning a last minute trip to San Antonio. She's taking a course there and she asked me if I could go with her this weekend and take her shopping. I'm from Mexico and I've gone shopping in Texas several times before, but I usually go with friends who drive all the way there and who know their way around. I've never gone there driving by myself, so I really don't think it's a good idea for me to take my car (I hardly know my way around the city where I live :eek:).

    So I was wondering about transportation in San Antonio... Taxi fares in the US are way too expensive for me, so I was thinking I could use the bus system. I've never used the bus in San Antonio, so I have no idea how feasible it is to move around in this way. Basically I'm staying at some Motel 6 in South Panam Expressway, then I'd need to pick up my friend in Cantrell Drive and from there we'd go shopping to some mall and whatnot... So I'm wondering if I could get some advice on this... would I have to walk a lot? is it dangerous? Is there a better way of moving around that is budget friendly? etc... Thanks in advance :eek:

    biggest problem is the public transportation is Texas is not that great because of how spread out the city is does not make it very piratical cost wise to have a good system.
