ViaVan is an on-demand ride-sharing service. Through the ViaVan app, passengers will be matched in real time with other riders headed their way, sharing their trip in a professionally-chauffeured van. ViaVan intends to serve as an extension of the city’s existing public transit network, providing an affordable and convenient transportation alternative that reduces congestion and carbon emissions.
How it works
Using the ViaVan app, passengers select their pick up and drop off location and confirm their ride. ViaVan’s algorithm enables multiple riders to share a single vehicle. The technology directs passengers to a nearby corner – a virtual bus stop – for pick up and drop off, allowing for quick and efficient shared trips without lengthy detours that take riders out of their way. This enables ViaVan’s system to transport a high volume of passengers while using a fraction of the number of vehicles utilized by taxis or on-demand car services. Rides within the central city zone* will cost a flat rate of just €5. (See map)
We are working hard so ViaVan will also be available in our app. To be continued!
