Defining and pioneering the TransitTech category is a journey nearly a decade in the making — beginning with a few vans at the intersection of 93rd and York Avenue in New York City. Today, we are the world’s most powerful digital infrastructure for public transportation. Via’s software provides an end-to-end solution to plan, optimize, and operate efficient and equitable transit systems — unlocking opportunity for all, and building resilient cities for the future.
From changing a single person’s daily commute to reducing humanity’s collective environmental footprint — we’ve got huge goals. Together with our partners, we’re creating more livable cities that are efficient, highly connected, and help more people easily access education, healthcare, and employment opportunities.
Ensuring that transportation can be enjoyed by anyone is non-negotiable. Whether a rider has a disability, prefers to use cash, or isn’t comfortable using technology, they’re welcome onboard and can ride confidently, knowing that we’ll never leave them behind.
We’re committed to helping advance racial equity in transportation systems and through policy. Inside Via, our team should look like our riders — because a diverse and inclusive workforce is proven to drive real business success. We continually listen, learn, and work towards a more diverse, inclusive, and anti-racist company every day.
Transportation is a great equalizer — it removes barriers to good jobs, quality healthcare, and educational opportunities for all. Where you live should not determine your economic mobility or overall quality of life.
Sharing is a founding principle; it’s in our DNA. Sharing rides, yes (that one’s a no-brainer) but we’re also passionate about sharing with our partners. Whether knowledge, resources, data, ideas, or celebrations — we share it all.
We’ve reduced greenhouse gas emissions by more than 32 million pounds in the last few years — and we’ve only just begun. Building sustainable cities means reducing congestion by taking cars off the road, especially single occupancy trips, to move towards a car-free future.
Via is headquartered in New York City with many other offices around the world.
