Via is re-engineering public transit — from a regulated system of rigid routes and schedules to a fully dynamic, on-demand network. Via is able to seamlessly integrate with existing fixed-route transportation infrastructure, helping to fill in gaps where existing transit isn’t easily accessible.
Via’s technology efficiently works to aggregate multiple passengers into shared vehicles, reducing single-occupancy vehicle trips, thus improving traffic congestion and curtailing carbon emissions. The powerful technology directs passengers to a nearby corner — a virtual bus stop — for pick up and drop off, and dynamically routes the vehicle in real-time, allowing for quick and efficient shared trips without lengthy detours, or inconvenient fixed routes and schedules.
The easy-to-use mobile interface is suited to riders of all ages.
- Less dependency on car ownership

Via has been tapped by cities and transit authorities in more than 60 markets in 15 countries around the world, including several deployments Australia, including projects in Sydney and Newcastle, as well as an autonomous vehicle project in Coffs Harbour called BusBot.
