Jersey City, NJ partnered with Via to launch the state's first on-demand public bus service

Jersey City, NJ launched on-demand public bus service

In Progress

Jersey City partnered with the ride-share company, Via, to launch the state's first on-demand public bus service. This innovation solution allowed the city to save the massive funds necessary for traditional public transit infrastructure expansions. Residents simply use the Via mobile app to book a shared ride and then receive directions to the nearest "virtual bus stop" for pickup. This project was designed to improve mobility while also reducing the number of private vehicles on city streets.
