App Reviews

  • Could be better.

    By Hziahhb
    I’ve had an, overall, pretty average experience with via so far. As far as alerts and promotions go, I’m content. Via is on the money, and I find myself in the best position to make a decent earning on a daily basis. What disappoints me, however, is Via’s sub-par GPS that I’m forced to depend on. Via’s GPS doesn’t provide any information about turning lanes, or any lanes for that matter, and it can make the driving experience quite exhausting. I suggest you improve the app itself, or provide drivers with an option to use other GPS. The app doesn’t provide any. Also, I find it difficult to keep accurate track of my daily earnings on the app. That’s because it counts any earnings made after 12AM as earnings made on the next day. As a driver who takes a lot of late-night trips, it can get extremely tedious.
  • Worst app and driver support

    By Akash.P
    Every body is talking about the app and navigation system but nobody notice their worst payment system. In blue mode they won’t give you more than the hourly rate even if you make more than that. And now the worst part is their flex mode which was good before. Now they add guaranteed fare in every flex trip. Because of that now drivers are making 20% less than before the guaranteed fare. For example, before for a 20miles trip drivers were making $40-$42 after VIA’s 20% fee. Now for the same trip drivers are making $32-$34 after the 20% fee. Via has a worst app ever. Need more work on the app. Always make sound in navigation which is annoying. Very bad driver support. Trying to contact with via support team about missing toll for a long time. Still no response. Each time I call they say an agent will be with me shortly but after couple of minutes they hang up.
  • App still needs a lot of development

    By Zanatov
    The pay rates are indeed the best in the industry, but there are many drawbacks that make it an unattractive option. The main reasons being: 1- No instant pay-out option which is standard and very important on every other platform. 2- No option to reset your password or anywhere to click if you forget your login info. That’s just ridiculous. Honestly guys... 3- Forced to use their gps navigation and no option to use other apps. The Via nav is simply horrible especially in a city like DC which is very hard to navigate. 4- Rides can be sparse and long down time. So even though the pay rate is higher, I’ll still make more on Uber or Lyft because of higher volume. This can be solved with stronger marketing..
  • It is not we developed.

    By Tesppd
    I appreciate your effort to develop the app however is has a lot of bottlenecks. When you use the Via app GPS for tunnels and complex highways you cannot get exact exit ahead of time. It is weird by using its GPS to pass Virginia highways and tunnels. When I changed the routes the Via GPS app is not responding the route change immediately. As compared to other apps on the high speed roads, highways and tunnels, I am afraid to use it. I am not confident for your expansion to Virginia to use it as an app GPS. It is better to tuned to other GPS apps alternatively. If I will get offer to go Virginia by Via app GPS, I will cancel the offer before I start to drive. So I strongly advise you to link the Via app with Waze and google map app. Based on the problems I rated one star because it needs a lot of improvements. It is not well developed.
  • Has not received my earnings for more than a month

    By Максим Z
    Very bad experience with VIA. In addition to all the other shortcomings of the application described below, I also can not get my earnings. After my request to the support team, they wrote to me that they would send money as soon as possible. Then they apologized, and said that they need to update the bank information (although it was complete and reliable). After that they wrote to me that everything is in order and that the money will come soon. Now they write to me that I should come to their office and pick up a check (they did not send my check to my post office). More than a month have passed. It turns out that I should now spend my time and money on parking and go to their office to pick up my money. It's very terrible. Disgusting service VIA !!!
  • Non Stop Ding Notifications

    By Pas#1
    The company is good to work for but the app is horrible. The app does not stop sending ding alerts. Once you get a ride it sends sound alerts and dings nonstop. Even if there isn’t a passenger added or a turn coming up it will still ding. For a person that likes to listen to music while driving this is a major inconvenience because the alerts pause your music every time it dings which is every 10 seconds. Especially when there’s a ton of traffic. That issue is literally making me want to delete the app. There isn’t a way to turn off the alerts either. You just have to suffer through it. I hope they fix this issue soon. I don’t recommend downloading the app.
  • Poor to A-OK

    By Dabobechai
    It’s just an app sometimes I feel like it didn’t even pass the betaware during development. You Could use paper map better than the GPS provided. Promotions appear in the app a couple of hours before the kick off. You can never plan ahead specially for afternoon/evening rides. I use it in DC and since they expanded service coverage to all of DC the app keeps lagging and sometimes failing to connect to its server causing drivers to miss on possible rides not that people in DC know about via. Tracking earnings is so difficult and doesn’t even show you the gross amount of the week worked. You will have to wait for the weekly pay statement email. Not a big fan in general.
  • Driver App is horrible

    By duddud
    I have been driving for Via for over a year. The app was horrible when I started and has gotten worse with all the app updates. Via also logs me out while I still have passengers in the car, when I text support they are no help, the phone number to call no one answers. I email the payment department and they tell me I must have ended my shift, I write back, why would I end my shift with a rider in my car that still has quite a distance to go? I never hear back and I don’t get paid. I can only guess that if Via is wrong you don’t get an answer and this is what happens when teenagers run a company, they just don’t seem to give a $h!t...
  • Greater service Even for the drivers

    By Jonsalinas10
    I have to say I’m impressed with vía customer service m. They literally are the greatest team I have encounter considering I have drive for other ride-sharing companies. I consider is just about a little more of time for people to find out more about vía and they will take over the ride-sharing world.
