ViaVan is one of the newest players on the taxi scene in Europe. Originally begun in the US to rival Über, Via has taken New York and Chicago by storm. Thanks to Mercedes-Benz Vans, ViaVan has arrived in Amsterdam and is ready to provide you with a smooth and classy experience.
ViaVan works a bit differently to most ride-sharing apps, because it takes the “Sharing” part seriously to make your trip up to three times cheaper than a regular taxi. Open the app, set your location and destination, and ViaVan will show you all drivers going the way you need and organise a pick-up location. Maybe you’ll join an existing ride, or maybe you’ll be the first and will be joined by others along the way!
Looking for a bit more privacy? Not keen on sharing? ViaVan looks after you too, giving you the ability to spend a little extra and order a private car for those times you have a large group, or need that more direct route to your destination.
Maybe you’re trying to get across the city in a hurry to make that lunch booking, or you just want an extra convenient and cheap way to get to the clubs on a Saturday night? Just pull up the ViaVan app! It’s easy to see which vans are going past near you and schedule a pick-up.
With your Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket, your first ViaVan ride within the old Amsterdam canal network is free! Your only worry will be to figure out how to get your friends away from the pre-drinks and into the car when it arrives.
