“Riders will be able to leave their car at home and won’t have to worry about parking in the city,” the news release said.
On most nights riders will have to walk only a couple of minutes to meet a driver and rides will cost $2.50.
The service area does not include the airport.
Door-to-door service will be offered for passengers who require a wheelchair-accessible car.
Riders can download the app by searching ‘Via’ in the App Store for iPhone or in Google Play for Android.
