Via: The Leader in Public Mobility

Via powers public mobility through smart and sustainable microtransit around the globe.

Via’s technology enables multiple passengers headed in the same direction to seamlessly share their ride, rerouting vehicles in real time in response to demand and traffic. Via operates in cities of all sizes, from major metropolitan centers to suburban and rural environments.

Via operates consumer services in New York, Chicago, and Washington, D.C., as well as in London, Amsterdam and Milton Keynes through its joint venture with Mercedes Benz, ViaVan.

Across the U.S. and the world, cities and towns are partnering with Via to provide public transportation solutions. For example, Via increases access to transit hubs, improves paratransit, creates equitable public transportation by filling transit deserts, and optimizes poorly performing bus routes.

Via has partnerships in many locations, including Los Angeles, Seattle, London, Berlin, Tel Aviv, Helsinki, Arlington (TX), Cupertino, West Sacramento, Sydney, Jakarta, and Tokyo.

Beyond public transportation, Via also develops on-demand and pre-scheduled mobility solutions for universities, school districts, taxi fleets, and private companies to solve pressing mobility needs with demand-responsive technology.

Good for the Environment + Congestion

Through efficient routing and aggregation, Via increases occupancy in vehicles and provides a convenient public mobility alternative to driving a car. In New York City, Via is 3× more efficient than competitors, with the NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) reporting Via has the highest utilization rate and lowest “cruising” rate of any for-hire vehicle. service.

  • More than 95% of Via rides are booked as shared rides.
  • Via riders saved more than 32M pounds of CO2 since launch in 2013 by choosing to ride shared instead of private.
  • In 2019 alone, Via riders saved more than 18.5M vehicle miles by choosing to ride shared instead of private.

For Via, the Future Is Not Only Shared, but Also Electric and Autonomous

  • Via developed the platform for Electric Vehicles to operate as part of large- scale shared fleets, and its technology integrates unique features within its routing algorithm to optimize the range and utilization of electric vehicles.
  • In Berlin, ViaVan powers and operates the world’s largest public on-demand fleet with more than 50% electric vehicles. In Milton Keynes, ViaVan will be the first fully-electric fleet in the UK offering on-demand shared rides.
  • Via is building and deploying public mobility solutions that will enable autonomous vehicle fleets to function in real-world situations as part of optimized, shared transportation systems.

Via also brought shared-ride technology to yellow taxis in New York City through a partnership with Verifone/Curb.
