My driver was great! How can I thank them?
Our driver partners are the butter to our bread. Simply put, they’re the best! If you had a great experience with a driver, please let us know by filling out the feedback screen after your ride. You can also tip your driver directly in the app or by cash.
How do I retrieve something left in a Via?
We’ve all been there, and we feel for ya! As soon as you realize an item is missing, please let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll put you in touch with your driver to track it down! At the end of the day, unclaimed items will be returned to the Newton Senior Center, and you can contact them to locate your item. The Newton Senior Center’s lost and found policy will apply once returned.
Why is my place-pin in the middle of the ocean?
We’re not quite ready to pilot Via’s shared submarine service, so your map definitely shouldn’t be defaulting to a strange location. Please make sure that Location Services are enabled for the Via app on your phone (Settings - Privacy - Location Services), and that should bring you back to dry land STAT!
Can I change my destination once I’m in the car?
We get it - mistakes happen, plans change, and sometimes the destination where you booked to is no longer the destination you need to get to.
While we aim to please on every ride, in the event that a change would delay another passenger in the car or awaiting pick up, we can't accommodate requests for changes to drop-offs. You can always shoot us a text or call us mid-ride at 617-655-8019, and we'll certainly try our best to accommodate your situation. If you haven't gotten on board yet, just cancel the ride and re-book with the new destination!
Where can I see my past rides and purchases?
You can view any past rides and purchases right in your app under "Menu" - "History."
My driver left without me!
Oh no - we're sorry we didn't get you on board!
If you were marked as a "No Show" and you still need a ride, please re-book directly in your app or over the phone with our Live Support Team, and send an email so we can look into what went wrong.
If your app is indicating that you were picked up, please text our Live Support Team directly by replying to any message we have sent you, so we can cancel that ride and make sure you are able to re-book. You can also call us directly if you do not have SMS and we can help sort the situation out STAT!
