VIA on Wednesday discussed ideas which resemble those being discussed in ConnectSA’s pursuit for a new multimodal mass transit system.
Since 2014, VIA Metropolitan Transit has worked to increase the number of shelters at stops its ridership uses frequently.
VIA’s new Five Points Transfer Area features renovated shelters with charging stations for electronic devices, public art, and new landscaping.
The program includes VIVA Culture, Missions, and Centro routes. VIVA Centro is the most popular of the three routes with a frequency of 10 to 15 minutes.
VIA goMobile was released free of charge on the iOS and Android application stores on June 27.
