VIA

Via is re-engineering public transit -- from a regulated system of rigid routes and schedules to a fully dynamic, on-demand network. The Via algorithm matches, in real time, multiple passengers headed the same way with a single large SUV or van. Passengers request rides through a mobile app, and Via's systems instantly select and, if necessary, re-route the vehicle that best matches the passenger's route. Targeting the gap between outdated public transit and expensive luxury car services, the Via platform currently operates in New York City and Chicago, has provided more than four million rides, and is growing rapidly.
