Who you gonna’ call?
San Antonio 3-1-1 is one of our best resources in the city and with it’s easy to remember phone number, it’s hard to forget. If you’re in need of non-emergency city services such as pothole repair or to report stray animals, non-functioning traffic lights or downed street signs, or need to know how to arrange garbage or brush pickup, just pick up your phone and dial 311 any day of the week from 7AM to 11PM. You’ll be connected to a city of San Antonio customer service assistant who will help you get your problems resolved.
I’ve used it a few times and have found it to be extremely quick and friendly. Once, while driving near 410 and Bandera I noticed a geyser of water shooting up from the ground on the side of the road and not having SAWS number handy, I called 311 and they quickly informed SAWS of the problem and crews took care of the problem. If you’re not sure what city department to call (and it’s not an emergency – in that case call 911) about a problem, give 311 a call and they will either get the problem fixed or get you to the right people.
San Antonio 311 can also be reached at (210) 207-6000.
