viavan expands across london
get £4 off your first three rides
Watch out Uber, there’s a new ride hailing app in town and it’s just expanded its service in London. ViaVan only launched this year but it’s already provided more than three million rides in London across zones 1 and 2. Now they’ve widened the area they cover to zone 5, including a service to London City Airport, so you can get around way more of the city as well as travel out of it with ease.
ViaVan combines the convenience of a taxi trip with the affordability of mass transit thanks to a ride-sharing system that actually works. The algorithm ViaVan uses allows multiple people to share one car by setting pick-ups and drop-offs on corners rather than at front doors. This means the drivers don’t have to go round the houses and passengers don’t get taken out of their way. Sharing vehicles is also better for the environment than taking solo trips in taxis plus it’s cheaper than Uber, and we do like saving those pennies.
