ViaVan launches in London with £3 Zone 1 rides

ViaVan, a joint venture between Mercedes-Benz and US start-up Via, has launched in its ‘shared journey’ service in London.

From what I can gather, it is basically ‘UberPOOL with a minibus’.

A ViaVan will be heading in roughly one direction, say from Wimbledon to Central London, and will pick up people from ‘near’ their homes or wherever they are along the way.  Each passenger will be dropped off ‘near’ their final destination.

All rides will be shared.  The upside is very aggressive pricing – during the launch period, all rides inside Zone 1 will be priced at a flat £3.

I am pretty sure that this is not a service for me, but you may think differently.  There isn’t much of a website – see here – but full details are in the app.

    ViaVan Worked really well when I used it today – 2 minute walk to pick up and then about 5 min wait with drop off exactly where I wanted it – my promotion code is hugo7j2 and that will get you 6 free shared rides.

  2. Another promo code! This one gets you £20 of free credit that can be split between as many rides as you like. Code is MARK4G6 and download link is http://bit.ly/2BX6Amq
