Ratings and Reviews
The little things make an enjoyable job tedious!
Driving for VIA has been a good experience for me overall as it’s enabled me to make better financial decisions and be really flexible with school and dance (I drive in the Arlington market which works different than the others). My biggest gripe on the ViaBlue side besides the subpar GPS system is how much dang noise the app makes. Especially since the recent update, it dings randomly when nothing is going on. It dings when it wants me to “in 100 feet turn right” when I’m very much still driving straight for another 3 miles. Honestly, all the stupid noises would be somewhat bearable if it didn’t COMPLETELY shut off any other noises your phone is making while driving. The job is made that much worse when I can’t listen to my own music in the car because every single time I make a turn, come to a location stop, or even when I’m not doing anything at all, the music completely turns off. The simplest
improvement would be making these dumb alerts only INTERRUPT music functions, instead of completely HALTING them. It’s also INCREDIBLY data and battery heavy, and I can’t listen to those “helpful” dings if my phone has to stay plugged in but ultimately sounded off by the radio because the dings are insufferable and loud. And I refuse to drive in a dead silent car.
Could be better.
I’ve had an, overall, pretty average experience with via so far. As far as alerts and promotions go, I’m content. Via is on the money, and I find myself in the best position to make a decent earning on a daily basis. What disappoints me, however, is Via’s sub-par GPS that I’m forced to depend on. Via’s GPS doesn’t provide any information about turning lanes, or any lanes for that matter, and it can make the driving experience quite exhausting. I suggest you improve the app itself, or provide drivers with an option to use other GPS. The app doesn’t provide any.
Also, I find it difficult to keep accurate track of my daily earnings on the app. That’s because it counts any earnings made after 12AM as earnings made on the next day. As a driver who takes a lot of late-night trips, it can get extremely tedious.
Worst app and driver support
Every body is talking about the app and navigation system but nobody notice their worst payment system. In blue mode they won’t give you more than the hourly rate even if you make more than that. And now the worst part is their flex mode which was good before. Now they add guaranteed fare in every flex trip. Because of that now drivers are making 20% less than before the guaranteed fare. For example, before for a 20miles trip drivers were making $40-$42 after VIA’s 20% fee. Now for the same trip drivers are making $32-$34 after the 20% fee.
Via has a worst app ever. Need more work on the app. Always make sound in navigation which is annoying. Very bad driver support. Trying to contact with via support team about missing toll for a long time. Still no response. Each time I call they say an agent will be with me shortly but after couple of minutes they hang up.
