Via Acquires Citymapper to Expand TransitTech Platform
Friday 17 March 2023

US-based TransitTech provider Via has acquired UK-based journey planning app and transit technology provider Citymapper, to advance operating system in public mobility, the company said.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Following Via's recent financing round, the Citymapper acquisition accelerates Via's vision to build the end-to-end digital infrastructure for transit systems.

By integrating Citymapper into its platform, Via will be able to connect all elements of a transit system, offering a unified solution for cities, transit agencies, and riders.

The Citymapper product will be integrated into Via's TransitTech platform. Cities and transit agencies will have access to Via's software platform, which enables them to plan transit networks that are responsive and resilient to rapidly changing needs, to operate smart multi-modal transportation systems, and to use data to continually enhance performance -- now unified with an optimised experience for riders from Citymapper.

Via pioneered the TransitTech category by using new technologies to develop public mobility systems -- optimising networks of buses, shuttles, wheelchair accessible vehicles, school buses, autonomous vehicles, and electric vehicles around the globe.
