Via was founded in 2012 and, over the past 8 years, has grown into the world’s leading developer of public mobility systems, defining the TransitTech category. We partner with cities and transit agencies across the globe, harnessing the power of data to optimize networks of buses, shuttles, wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAVs), school buses, autonomous vehicles, electric vehicles, and more.
Our modular system has been proven in urban, suburban, and rural geographies and is specifically designed to serve everyone, everywhere, including those with limited mobility, those without access to smartphones, and the unbanked. With our public sector partners, we work to lower the costs of public transit provision and to provide transit options that compete with the convenience of personal cars. Together with our partners, we work to make mobility more accessible, equitable, and sustainable.
Alone in our industry, Via is able to combine its expertise as an integrator of all elements of a public transit system with the technological innovation of a software leader and the service design capabilities of a world-class transit planning consultancy. To date, Via has partnered with over 100 public transit providers globally, and the company’s technology has powered over 80 million rides in services around the world.
