The San Antonio Mobility Coalition (SAMCo) was created in 2001 to bring focus to the community’s short- and long-range transportation funding needs. The coalition was borne out of a need to remain competitive with other Texas cities and to address a projected $18.9 billion transportation funding shortfall in the San Antonio region. SAMCo is organized as a public-private partnership providing continuity and legitimacy through its public partners as well as ingenuity through its private partners. Working in partnership with TxDOT, Bexar County, the City of San Antonio, VIA Metropolitan Transit, the Bexar County-San Antonio MPO, the Alamo Regional Mobility Authority, area legislators, and the private sector, SAMCo’s strong advocacy has helped generate more than $1.2 billion in new and/or accelerated funding for transportation projects in our region.
