An 18-month pilot program for an on-demand shuttle powered by Via. Watch out our launch event here on 10/29/19. Via-Cupertino is an on-demand shuttle service providing transportation anywhere in Cupertino and to Sunnyvale Caltrain. The shuttles are comfortable, 6-passenger Mercedes Metris vans featuring Cupertino and Via logos on the doors. Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles are available.
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 your estimated wait time. Riders walk a short distance to meet the van to make trips direct and fast. If using the service by phone, the customer service representative will tell you where to meet the van and give you an estimated arrival time. Door-to-door service is available for disabled riders.
