Via Rideshare is available Monday through Saturday.

Since 2017, Arlington’s on-demand, rideshare public transportation service has helped residents, students and visitors reach neighborhoods, shopping centers, offices, restaurants, medical facilities and other key destinations across The American Dream City. The service also helps riders get to and from the CentrePort TRE Station, where they can connect to Dallas, Fort Worth and beyond.Now in its fifth year, the service continues to provide an equitable and flexible on-demand transit offering that is free from fixed routes and schedules. Via’s platform routes passengers in real time to convenient pickup and drop off locations within just a couple blocks, enabling multiple passengers headed in the same direction to efficiently share a single vehicle.

Via Rideshare is available Monday through Saturday for those who need transportation out of convenience or necessity.

Here’s what some of customers had to say recently about why they choose Via:

  • “I’m not a frequent user, but as a senior citizen on fixed income, I have no other means of transportation and I occasionally need transportation to destinations too far to walk.”
  • “It is my source of transportation to and from work. I am legally blind and don’t drive.”
  • “We can’t have a car because of my husband’s dementia. Via is a life saver because I don’t have to wait for the schedules of others to give us a ride.”
  • “Via is great for students like me who need to commute for groceries and meet friends. It’s been a great help to me in this regard.”
  • “Via is an affordable way to get to doctor appointments and other places around town. Plus, my granddaughter uses Via every day to get home from school.”
  • “It is so convenient to be able to call Via when I travel from Dallas on TRE to CentrePort. Via makes my visit to the doctor or a store affordable.”

Riders can book a shared ride six days a week using a smartphone application or a dial-in phone number, 817-784-7382. The service operates from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturdays.

Fares are based on trip distance, with a minimum of $3 per trip for rides up to 1.5 miles in length and a maximum of $5 per ride for trips over 6 miles in length. Via Pass, a weekly pass that allows riders to take up to four trips per day, costs $25.
