VIA is what the Arlington City Council decided was needed to waste taxpayers' dollars for a ride-share program.

For VIA to operate its first year, it costs taxpayers $922,500. $600,000 of federal taxpayers' dollars and $322,500 of Arlington taxpayers' dollars.

The second year is expected to cost over $2.1 million, with less than 15% coming from the people that actually use the service (many not even Arlington taxpayers).

Service started on December 11, 2017.

 

Revenues of the program will be put back into the program....
