Take in a day of shopping and dining from Southtown to the Pearl without having to navigate traffic or go through Downtown with VIA Metropolitan Transit's Holiday Special on the Blue Route, which began running on November 27 and is active through January 2.

The bus can get you anywhere from the Blue Star Arts Complex to the Alamo to the new Hotel Emma at the Pearl.

It runs every 15 minutes weekdays from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. and from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. on weekends.

Fares are $1.20, or 60 cents for customers with a VIA Reduced Fair ID and VIA passes are accepted.

So put your personal vehicle away and go green while enjoying the holidays.
