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 in the review function of the Via App, send a text message by clicking "Get Help" here, or email us here.
Via does not tolerate discrimination of any kind against our riders or driver partners. This includes discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, religious belief or affiliation, gender, sex, sexual identity or orientation, age, veteran status, physical, mental or other disability (actual or perceived), rider’s points of departure and destination, or any other characteristic protected under applicable federal or state law. Additionally, Via does not tolerate discrimination of any kind against service animals. Riders or driver partners found to have violated Via’s anti-discrimination policy will lose access to the Via Platform. If you believe that you have been subject to discrimination by a Via rider or driver partner, please provide feedback in the review function of the Via App, send a text message by clicking "Get Help" here, or email us here.
