Via Global Policies
What can we help you with?
Zero Tolerance Policy
Via has a strict Zero Tolerance policy. Driver partners are prohibited from driving on the Via Platform while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and riders are prohibited from consuming alcohol or drugs inside the vehicle. We do not tolerate inappropriate, threatening or violent behavior by anyone using the Via Platform or towards any riders or driver partners.
If you are a rider and observe or believe any of the following, please ask the driver to terminate the trip immediately:
- your driver partner may be under the influence of drugs or alcohol,
- your driver is behaving in a manner that you consider inappropriate or that makes you feel uncomfortable or unsafe, or
- your driver engages in conduct which could be considered unlawful or illegal.
If you feel that you are in imminent danger, please contact the police directly by calling 911. After the ride has concluded, please provide feedback using the review function of the Via App or email us at email@example.com to report the issue.

Service Animal Policy
Service animals must always be welcome to ride without restriction. Driver Partners have a legal obligation to provide service to riders with service animals. If you are a rider traveling with a service animal and wish to report any issue you experience related to your service animal, please contact Via support.
Riders traveling with pets that are not service animals should keep their pets in an airline-approved carrier to use the service.
No Weapons Policy
Via has a strict "No Weapons" policy. This means that if any Driver Partner or rider possesses a weapon, regardless of whether possession of such a weapon is legal or whether they have a lawful permit for that weapon, they will be removed from the service. Note that we reserve sole judgment on what constitutes a "weapon."
Help us make our shared community safer for all riders and Driver Partners by refraining from bringing weapons of any kind when you ride with Via. If you observed a weapon during your trip on the Via service, please contact us at email@example.com.
