    I use Via all the time - it’s incredible. Great service. Affordable and efficient rideshare - highly recommend!
  • Effective 5/5

    By racksbergs
    Knowing exactly which side/location on a street corner to meet is extremely effective.
  • Not accurate times displayed for pickup 1/5

    By Tiffgriff1234
    The problem with via is that the app does not display accurate wait times. It will say “your ride is 2 min away” for 10+ min. They really need to update this as now I’ll only take via if I’m not in a rush which is hardly ever.
  • Pleasure to deal with 5/5

  • Horrible drivers 1/5

    By Jsei
    Driver spoke no english. Like didn't know the words left and right. This was a problem because he got lost. Twice. And, the driver took a 10 minute call on speakerphone during our trip. This is the third or fourth time I’ve used via and there have been 2 problems. I will not use it again and don’t recommend it.
  • The best! 5/5

    By De Flip

    By John Robot
    I downloaded this app and after I entered all my information, tried to use it, but what’s stupid app!!! There is no button I can click on to enter my destination!!! I think they forgot to complete this app
  • Awesome driver! 5/5

    By park slope Jamie
    Will be booking again!
  • RUN FROM VIA! 1/5

    By amgry x-via user
    Via is just the worst ! They will cause you to be late, stranded, cause you to lose your job the way they are so unorganized! You just CANNOT rely on VIa ! Omggggggg please I'm leaving this comment so you won't get sucked into this scam of a cab service because of low prices ! Somethings money can't buy and that's time! Via will steal all your time and cause you to use public transportation after waiting 25 mins for a cab they said was 7 mins away! JUST RUN!
  • Great service ignore bad reviews 5/5

    By Fios1715
    The service is really good. A lot of the bad reviews don’t understand how the service works. They don’t pick you up exactly at your location, they pick you up within two blocks of your location to improve the routing for everyone. The same goes for drop off, they drop you off within two blocks of your destination. in my experience it’s usually within a half a block if not the exact spot I wanted to go. Yes occasionally I’ve had a weird driver, but I’ve noticed these drivers are few and far between. The review system on the drivers really does help them get rid of bad drivers.
  • Best service 5/5

    By Destiny.m
    Cheap if you catch it at the right time.
  • App is so easy to use! 5/5

    By leelachai
    Via offer the reasonable price compared to lyft and Uber! And app is much easier to use! Deaf-friendly as well!
  • Never again 1/5

    By Urdiggy
    Guy who picked me up had his gf in the car. She was talking to me like I was a threat to their relationship or something. Just awful. Thought it would be better when they had to open this up to more areas in the district but no. I just can’t it’s never worth it.
  • Best App! 5/5

    By NYC Bella
    Always terrific
  • Easy app, easy ride 5/5

    By Moviesuperfan
    Via is the way to go. Easy to order, mostly nice cars, very dependable and ny far the best prices of all car services. What else do you expect!!
  • Bad drivers 1/5

    By Lion 89
    Very bad customer service. Had me wait 50 minutes for a solution to their hypocrite driver who said he “doesn’t want to go to Newark”. Disappointed and frustrated. Used to be better before.
  • Great app, if... 1/5

    By Bauer24/7 left home early but really wanted to be fashionably late. By far the worst routing of any competitor, and the savings simply don’t justify the lost time. Stick with Lyft Line, Uber Pool, or Juno.
  • What Happened, Via?! You Used to be Good 2/5

    By Fingertappin'
    I used Via when it was still relatively new, and it was a good app. It had reliable service and I could count on the wait time estimates. At the time, I primarily used the app to get from the UWS to the LES because of the unbeatable price. I never had problems with pick up times or locations. However, when I stopped needing to travel so far, I began to opt for uber pools or the subway because it was cheaper to go shorter distances. Recently, I started using Via again. But as many other reviews have said, I was unimpressed with the experience. That night, I was supposed to wait something reasonably, like 5-7 minutes or so. About 15 min later, my ride still wasn’t there. The wait time just kept updating and getting longer. I ended up canceling the ride and taking a taxi instead. Unfortunately, I had added credit to my account to pay for the ride before I realized I would have to wait so long, so I had to use up those credits so my money wouldn’t go to waste. I requested about four rides after that. For each one, I had to wait longer than the estimated time. Only one came just a little late. The rest were just unacceptably late. It is incredibly frustrating to speed walk to your pick-up location, only to see the 3 minute wait increase to a 5 minute wait, and then to increase again or stay at that amount of time for like ten minutes. This last time, I cancelled my ride, and took a taxi. It was about $9 more, but 100% worth it. No wait, and it took me right to my door. Please fix these inaccurate wait times. They are frustrating and often leave me wondering why I chose to use Via over literally any other method of transportation. I don’t want or like to write bad reviews, but I want you guys to know what needs to improve so you can continue to have a good reputation within the ride-sharing industry. Via, please get it together!!!
  • The best deal and great drivers 5/5

    By jennyvia
    Competition is out there. Via is always the best price, and drivers seem to like their jobs 👍🏻
  • Time estimates always off 2/5

    By GarrettLustig
    Today I took via and The time estimate stayed at 3 minutes for 10 minutes. Then jumps to four then 2 then 6 then driver shows up. Does not work!
  • Great ride! 5/5

    By Twizzyface54
    Lovely lady! Pleasure driving with her!
  • Awesome driver! Nabil rocks! 5/5

    By Steffmx
    Nabil was courteous, personable and an all around nice guy and really good driver.
  • Amazing App Amazing Price 5/5

    Via provides a great car service at an incredibly low price. It gets me everywhere I want to go in about the same time as a taxi or an Uber but for a fraction of the price. I can't wait until they're in more cities.
  • Love 5/5

    By Iluvmnhattan
  • Pathetic 1/5

    By Smokey Mountain two
    I have had no luck with via. Their pickup place is always wrong no matter how many times I write the correct address forcing me to jump into a cab. After that there is no one I can call at via for help. Also the cars have no identifier. No one calls me. It’s a disaster
  • Great 5/5

    By Medz1989
    Awesome fast cheep
  • No Apple Pay??!! 1/5

    By Vascaino1979
    Seriously?! All other apps offer Apple Pay. Will continue to use others until Apple Pay is enabled!!
  • Great 5/5

    By TD510
    I NEVER used car services until I tried Via. Now it's all I'll use!
  • Great ride 5/5

    By phil david
    Great way to experience the worlds greatest city on beautiful Day
  • Sticking with Uber. 1/5

    By Yesi💁
    So they only drive you to the airports, downtown and north side Chicago. I live outside of this “zone” so it’s pretty useless for me. Also, as soon as I entered my credit card info they charged me $1. Why? For what? Not the best app. I’ll stick with Uber.
  • Great shared ride app 5/5

    By leebeenyc
    Use via regularly easy to use
  • Excellent and affordable service 5/5

    By Rchopra
    Used to be all about Uber. Then, you know, all the things at the back office. Still love Lyft. But now I’ve got another option, which is great. It’s basically like Lyft Line all the time, with a tiny amount of walking to help smooth out pickups and drop offs. Which I have to say, does make for a better overall experience.
  • Definitely not worst prices ok 3/5

    By deasnuta
    The gps never is accurate with this app prices or ok but they don’t add all fees during checkout. The drivers ask black people to move their seats for whites. They also have no American drivers.

    By Amir.B1984

  • Fake promos are the worst 1/5

    By J3457543
    Via sent me a push notification promo, and when I swiped on it, nothing happened. Then they sent me another notification with a much smaller one. 👎
