Free $20 Via Ride Credit (Previously $10) Promo Code – New Users Only

Updated on November 11, 2018

Via, a smaller competitor to Uber and Lyft, now operates in 3 cities (NYC, Chicago and Washington DC) and is offering $20 bonus promo credit when you sign up by 11/11/11!

Via started out in New York City with it's $5 shares rides and also launched in Chicago with $3.95 rides, and eventually in DC.  The Doc initially reported a $20 promo but shortly closed the post for comments as new users were only getting $10.  I don't think he realized that this $20 promo was extremely targeted.  If you didn't receive this email below, you are not targeted and your referral is only worth $10.

VIA vs COMPETITION

Via is a little different than it's bigger competitors. Via is essentially a shared-shuttle that usually takes local roads picking up people and dropping them off along the way.  Just like Uber and Lyft, Via offers a private ride option for a higher fare.  Unlike Uber and Lyft, the routing / pairing is the most direct and IMO is the best option when ride-sharing in NYC.

 

USE PRE-TAX DOLLARS

There is no tax added to the rides AND you can use pre-tax dollars. Via takes several different payment methods including TransitCheck, Commuter Check, Beniversal, WageWorks, and eTRAC.

ADDITIONAL NOTES

If you are in a rush or easily get annoyed by other people, Via may not be the best idea. There might be many stops along the way – just like taking a train or bus! Its like Uber Pool and Lyft Line. And, didn't you hear this is the new tinder?
