VIA Driver (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 15, 2018
VIA picks up and drops off at intersections, much like a bus route. Their commission is higher than Uber and Lyft. Their driver support is more understanding than the other two. In general, opther than a limited service area, VIA is better then the other two for drivers.

No experienced leadership. (There is none) Blurry office etiquette lines. (People eat cereal for breakfast while helping drivers) Questionable hygiene. (Said people don't even wash their dishes. Dishes are left in sink and new hires and part timers are asked to rotate "office cleanup duties" at the end of the day)

- pick up and drop off passengers at their desired destinations - help elderly passengers to get into the car - have a nice conversation with passengers - help those who are looking for locations - smile and trying always to be polite to riders
the hardest part is that some riders do not want to share seats with others.Some want to be speaking loudly over the phone and do not care about others.
the most enjoyable part is that you learn a lot about diversity because you get a chance to meet people from diverse background.
Graet work ethics, and empolyee tretment, and craeting my own schedule.

A typical day at VIA consits of waking up in the early morning loging into the driver partner app and doing as much time as i saw fit to work. I learened you can have a job you love to go to. Being your own boss was such a great thing for me at times i was hard on myself some times to easy.

A typical day at work is collaborative and fast-paced, but my favorite part of the job is the people! I think it's a great place to work with a lot of opportunity to gain responsibility and make a difference in the fast-growing company.

Via is an amazing place to work - the product is great, the team is smart, the work is meaningful, and we enjoy what we're doing. The company is on a strong path and it's fun to see our hard work pay off!
great people, awesome product, nice office, interesting work
Via Transportation Driver (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – March 30, 2017
Rideshare pooling company that works on the city area, customers and the app is all right, yet needs more polishing on the gps and the option to make rides private, people sometimes want to get to a location without stopping for more people. The sign up process is good, the background check is a real background check, not a credit card background like Uber or Lyft so your credit wont get a hit when this companies are prying in your credit report. Soon they will offer airport rides, hopefully this will bring more business, yet is still a new company.
Open hours, ok bonuses, average rideshare pay, localized service.
Missing perks of other rideshare companies, like Shell gas rewards, discounts on cell phones, etc. People keep asking for private rides, not everyone like car pooling.
