What is Via?
Via is an on-demand transit system that takes multiple passengers heading in the same direction and books them into a shared vehicle. Think of Via as a bus that’s smart enough to come when you want it and where you want it.
Using our app for iPhone or Android, you can select your pick up and drop off, and we’ll do the rest. As we are a corner-to-corner service, we’ll pick you up at a nearby corner and then drop you off within a couple blocks of your requested destination. This helps us ensure that even with multiple pick ups, trip times are comparable to a taxi.
When and where does Via operate?
We currently operate in Arlington Mondays-Fridays from 6am-9pm and Saturdays from 9am-9pm.
Who is driving my Via?
You are our most precious cargo, and we take safety very seriously. When you book a ride, we connect you with a vehicle operated by a trained and experienced driver who is covered by the required insurance. All driver partners undergo thorough criminal background checks before driving on the Via platform.
But the necessary insurance and licensing are no-brainers. We expect more! We want all Via vehicle drivers to be downright amazing, so don’t forget to leave feedback for your driver after each ride – you’ll help us make sure only the best drivers get to drive for Via.

How many people will I share a ride with?
The number of passengers you will share a ride with varies depending on who’s headed in the same direction at the same time and the make and model of the Via-cle picking you up! Most of our vehicles in Arlington seat 6 passengers, but vehicle capacities may range from 3-6 riders when full.
