How does Pickup work?
- Savy is an on-demand transit system service powered by Via that takes multiple passengers heading in the same direction and books them into a shared vehicle. Using the Savy app, type in your address and your destination and we’ll match you with a vehicle going your way.
- To save time and reduce detours, we’ll pick you up on a nearby corner and drop you off within a few blocks of your requested destination. Our smart algorithms provide trip times that are comparable to a taxi, even with multiple pick-ups along the way.
