VIA is looking for Prímo riders to take part in a pilot program to test a new real-time bus information app and provide feedback.

The SmartRider VIA app offers free real-time departures for the Prímo 100 bus route. You’ll get accurate information by voice or text on your smartphone at any bus stop along the route. There are no buttons to press, nor zooming or scanning a map to locate your stop. The app does it all for you.

To help VIA test the SmartRider VIA app simply follow these steps.

1. Download the free SmartRider VIA app by Avanss LLC on your smartphone from the Apple Store or Google Play.

2. Once downloaded, open the app and ride Prímo 100. The smart sensing technology will notify with real-time arrival time for the Prímo stop you use regularly.

3. Provide your comments and feedback through the app.

This is a limited test of the app which only works for Prímo 100 stops.
