What is the ViaPass?

The ViaPass is especially designed for our most loyal commuters and makes Via more affordable than ever. To purchase a ViaPass, just open your app "Menu" and head to the section labeled "ViaPass."

The ViaPass in NYC
  • 1-week Manhattan 24/7 ViaPass – $63 + tax

  • 4-week Manhattan 24/7  ViaPass - $229 + tax

  • 4- week Manhattan Commuter ViaPass - $179 + tax

Take up to four (4) shared rides per day within Manhattan south of 125th street, all day every day with the Manhattan 24/7 ViaPass, or Monday-Friday between 6am-9pm with the Manhattan Commuter ViaPass.

Need to go farther or get there even faster? You can upgrade any of your 4 daily ViaPass rides with a discount on the base price of your ride, as follows:
                     

Discounts are available for as long as you have not exhausted your 4 daily rides and count towards that maximum. Only the 10% discount is available outside of commuting hours for holders of the Manhattan Commuter ViaPass. Discounts may not be combined; maximum one discount per ride.


Some things to remember:
  • The ViaPass is activated when you take your first ride

  • Cancellations, No Shows, and +1s (additional  passengers) are charged at $3 each

  • Free and/or discounted rides are limited to a total of 4 per day

  • The ViaPass is only valid for rides within NYC. If you’re using Via while in Chicago or DC, you’ll need to buy extra Ride Credit or a local ViaPass.

  • SharedTaxi rides are excluded from any ViaPass discounts

  • As of 9/4/2017, Unlimited ViaPasses are no longer available for purchase. Members who have purchased an Unlimited ViaPass prior to 9/4/2017 can continue to enjoy unlimited shared Via rides anywhere within Manhattan below 125th Street or within our service zones in Brooklyn/Queens until their ViaPass expires. Unlimited ViaPass users get 20% off the base price on all airport trips, 50% off the base price on all trips between Manhattan and Brooklyn/Queens, and 50% off the base price on all ViaExpress rides. Private rides and Shared Taxi trips are excluded from any Unlimited ViaPass discounts.

Terms & Conditions: The ViaPass price includes a NY Black Car Fund fee. The ViaPass is activated at the time you take your first ride, not at time of purchase, except when an election has been made to auto-renew a ViaPass, in which case activation of the new ViaPass will occur at the time of the expiration of the previously purchased ViaPass. Each ViaPass expires at the end of the stated validity period, to the minute of the activation time. Each individually purchased ViaPass is limited to a single user, account and device (i.e., multiple people cannot share a single ViaPass). ViaPass holders are prohibited from booking a ride on behalf of another person or party, and must be present in all bookings made with their ViaPass. Via reserves the right to deactivate any ViaPass it determines to be used in violation of these terms, with immediate effect, and without refunds. A ViaPass holder may book rides for his or her +1's, though additional fees apply. The ViaPass cannot be combined with other offers or promotions. Charges for cancellations and no-show fees will apply. Available while supplies last. Via reserves the right to cancel this offer or modify its terms at any time. Via does not guarantee the availability of rides.
