Arlington Member Competition Terms & Conditions
NO PURCHASE IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. ALL FEDERAL, STATE, LOCAL, AND MUNICIPAL LAWS AND REGULATIONS APPLY. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED.
Sponsor: The Promotion is sponsored by Via Transportation, Inc., 609 E Main St, Arlington, TX 76010 (“Via” or the “Sponsor”).
Promotion Period: The “Via Arlington Member Competition” (the “Promotion”) begins at 12:00 a.m. Central Time (“CT”) on January 22, 2018 and ends at 11:59 p.m. CT on February 3, 2018 (the “Promotion Period”). Sponsor’s computer system is the official time-keeping device for the Promotion. All Qualified Events must occur during the Promotion Period, as described below. Odds of winning depend on the number of Qualified Events realized by each Via Member (“Member”) during the Promotion Period.
Eligibility: Promotion is open to (i) all legal residents of the United States and District of Columbia (ii) who are eighteen (18) years or older at the time they enter the Promotion, and (iii) who are able to be in the Arlington, TX Via service area to ride with Via (“Entrants”). Employees, officers, and directors (including immediate family members and members of the same household) of Sponsor or its affiliated companies, parent companies, subsidiaries, and advertising and promotion agencies, and any other entities associated with this Promotion (collectively, “Released Parties”), are not eligible to participate.
Sponsor, in its sole discretion, shall determine the eligibility of Entrants, the number of Qualified Events generated during the Promotion Period, and whether such events qualify. A Qualified Referral will only count towards an Entrant’s total Qualified Referral number when the referred member creates an account on the Via Platform.
How to Enter: During the Promotion Period, eligible participants will be invited to enter the Promotion by receiving in-person communication or email. Participants can enter the Promotion by (1) for existing Members who have previously completed at least one ride on the Via Platform, referring their friends and family or other people personally known to them to ride with Via (“Qualified Referrals”) with their unique member promotional referral code (“Referral Code”) or (2) for new Members, completing their first ride on the Via Platform (“Qualified First Ride”). Qualified Referrals must both have been referred and complete their first ride during the Promotion Period. For the avoidance of doubt, cancellations or no-shows do not constitute Qualified First Rides. Qualified Referrals and Qualified First Rides are together referred to as “Qualified Events”.
Qualified Referrals include only new users who have not previously created their own member account. Existing users do not qualify as Qualified Referrals. Entrants may share their Referral Code with persons in their network on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snap, LinkedIn) but Entrants are prohibited from posting their Referral Code on public websites, such as coupon code aggregators. Using a Referral Code to refer new accounts created by one same individual, or fraudulent accounts (including accounts set up with false personal or payment information), as determined by the Via system, is also strictly prohibited and will also not result in Qualified Referrals.
A Qualified Referral can only be counted once during the Promotion, including if multiple Entrants claim the same Qualified Referral. In this case, the Entrant whose unique code was used by the Qualified Referral shall receive credit for that Qualified Referral. However, each Qualified Referral MUST create a member account with Sponsor by clicking on Entrant’s Referral Code, as this is the sole method for tracking Qualified Referrals and attributing them to Entrants.
Multiple Entrants are not permitted to share the same email or other account needed for participation. Any attempt by any Entrant to register using multiple/different email or addresses, accounts, identities, registrations and logins, or any other method will void the participant’s entries and that participant will be disqualified. In the event of a dispute as to the identify of an Entrant, Entrant is deemed to be the natural person whose name and email address correspond to the Member whose unique Member ID number is assigned to the Referral Code. Sponsor shall make the final determination of the identity of an Entrant in its sole discretion in the event of an ongoing dispute.

Winner Selection and Notification: Each Member with one or more Qualified Events during the Promotion will be entered in the Promotion. Each additional Qualified Event will count as a separate Entry for that Member. The Winner of each Prize (as described below) will be selected at random from the pool of Entries. As applicable, a Participant may earn one Entry from a Qualified First Ride and thereafter earn more entries from Qualified Referrals.
Potential winners will be notified by text message or by email at the phone number or email address that Entrant has provided to Sponsor as a Member. Potential winner will have 48 hours from the time of receiving notification from Via to confirm acceptance of the prize. If potential winner does not confirm acceptance of the prize via email or text message in a timely manner, he or she will forfeit the Prize. Sponsor also reserves the right to disqualify a potential winner deemed ineligible (or who otherwise does not qualify to become a Winner) and select another Winner by random drawing.
Winner may be required to sign an affidavit of eligibility, liability release, and a publicity release. By entering or accepting any prize, Winner allows Sponsor to use his or name, photograph, prize information, and biographical information for publicity and promotional purposes without further compensation where permitted by law.
Prizes: One Grand Prize and additional prizes as described below will be awarded at the end of the Promotion. The Grand Prize to be awarded will be $50 in Via Ride Credit.
The second prize to be awarded will be $20 in Via Ride Credit. Three (3) winners will be awarded the second prize.
The third prize to be awarded will be $3 in Via Ride Credit. Ten (10) winners will be awarded the third prize.
By accepting any prize, Prize Winners agree to release the Sponsor and Released Parties from any and all liability whatsoever for any injuries, losses, or damages of any kind caused by entering the Promotion or for damages of any kind caused by any prize or resulting from acceptance, possession, or use/misuse of prize awarded.
