We are very excited to introduce Via-Cupertino, an on-demand shuttle service providing transportation anywhere in Cupertino and to Sunnyvale Caltrain. The system features new Mercedes Metris vans, each equipped with a bike rack (racks arrive in December). The comfortable vans seat 6, are ADA accessible, and feature custom graphics with the Cupertino and Via logos on the doors.
How to Ride
Download the app by searching "Via" in the App Store or Google Play. Look for the blue app icon, create an account and start riding! If you do not have a mobile device you can also call (669) 201-1892 to setup your account and request rides. Rides are not scheduled in advance, but after calling in to request a ride your van will arrive in approximately 15 minutes! Seniors, students and low-income riders get a 50% discount!
On-demand transit means no schedules or routes to remember. Instead a van travels to you and takes you to your destination. After requesting a ride, the app shows the van’s location and wait time (usually 15-17 minutes). Riders walk a short distance to meet the van to make trips direct and fast. Once on-board, you make your way to your destination and along with other riders heading in the same direction. Mobility impaired riders can request door-to-door service.
For discounted fares go to the Public Works counter at City Hall during regular business hours. A photo ID showing an age of 65+ is required for the senior fare, a student ID for the student fare, and a Cal Fresh card for the low-income fare.
*Discounted fares only apply to $5 base fare
