Via TaxiBy taxi
Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the Austin, Texas based transportation operator, operates a dial-a-ride passenger transportation system that connects passengers to big-box retail stores, a clinic, a nursing home and residential complexes.
The Via project provided an end-to-end end-to-end application, which included a custom drivers application, the Via drivers application, Via's web-based dispatching centre and extensive education and assistance for Capital Metro employees. Now, with a portable application or a call from a dispatchers agent, pick-up drivers can take a special ADA-compliant Capital Metro coach served by an agent and make a few minutes' announcement to anywhere in the 5 sq m area.
The Via-based services increased occupancy by over 50% and cut Capital Metro's costs per trip by almost 40% in just a few month.
The Via is a simple, quick, comfortable and intelligent way to find your way around. The Via is an on-demand, shared riding facility that accepts a number of travellers travelling in the same directions, making journeys accessible and costing little more than local transport! This is how it works: Adjust your pick-up and drive it off to apply for a trip.
Intelligent pick-up co-ordination takes you to a close-by spot to hit your chauffeur so your via and its occupants never have to get out of the way. Designed for carpooling, our intelligent algorithms and corner-to-corner pick-ups make driving quicker and more accessible for everyone.
Our rates are very competitive for everyone: safe your taxi fare and drive anywhere in our services area at competitive rates. Travelers get first-class, comfortable journeys for just a few bucks more than a citybus or metro. Authorized user can use Transitdollar before taxes to make payments for commuting benefits using authorized credit card. Payments are made directly via the application, so you can quickly and easily make payments for your trip.
And we provide real-time client assistance so you can get the most out of your trip.
