ViaVan app vs Uber app
Location: Uber is available in many cities but so far ViaVan app is only in London, Amsterdam, and Berlin for now.
Service: both a mobile app, similar technology behind. The new one is trying to offer more service such as packages named ViaPass. At the moment you can buy 3-day London ViaPass and 1-Week at £25 and £29, both pass offering ride free in London up to 4 daily rides.
Uber recently had a new look with their branding. ViaVan concurrence is rising and I wouldn’t be surprised if they grow up massively.
This more focus on pooling, as the “Uber pool”. So you share the ride with other travellers in order to pay less. I personally used Uber pool in different cities of the world and it can be good fun.
The service is nice. They are still fresh. It was founded in 2017 as a joint venture between Mercedes-Benz Vans and Via so let’s see how their evolution goes.
