Rideshare service arrives in Milton Keynes

ViaVan, the joint venture between shared transit company Via and Mercedes-Benz Vans, has announced the launch of its rideshare service in Milton Keynes.

This is the fourth city launch for ViaVan, following its successful debut in Amsterdam and London earlier this year, and its partnership with Berlin’s public transit authority.

“ViaVan was formed to re-engineer urban transit in Europe,” said Chris Snyder, CEO of ViaVan. “Milton Keynes is an innovation-forward city and we’re delighted to launch this ground-breaking on-demand service, providing residents with a convenient, affordable, and congestion-reducing dynamic transportation alternative.”

The service will utilise Via’s algorithm to route Mercedes-Benz Vito Tourers, allowing passengers to seamlessly book a shared van through the ViaVan app.
