Via is an on-demand transit system that incorporates aspects of both ride-sharing and public transit systems.Via provides riders with the ability to book trips with drivers on set routes, requiring passengers to be picked up and dropped off within a few blocks of their start and ending destination. By doing so, Via aims to provide a cost-effective ride sharing platform.
Via is currently fully available in New York City, Washington, DC, and Chicago and has limited operations in other cities. Additionally, Via offers to work with cities on bringing the Via system to their city as a substitute or augmentation to mass-transit systems. Via offers a five-step process that includes working with the Via data science team to simulate Via's impact on the city as well as working with Via's Partner Success Team to customize the Via app and train the Via drivers, dispatchers, and managers.
Via was founded in 2012 and is headquartered in New York City.
