VIA was founded in 1982 as a subsidiary of Merced Transportation Company to provide quality transportation
services for fun and necessity, to young and old of all abilities.
Since its inception, VIA’s fleet has grown to include motorcoaches, transit buses, and a variety of smaller vehicles.
VIA now serves the western and southwestern United States.
VIA fulfills the needs of its communities, customers, and partners through the operation of private charters,
contractual services for tour operators, transit operations, and specialized health-related transportation in
cooperation with public agencies and private non-profit organizations.
The company has grown considerably in its nearly 30 year history and remains committed to the highest business
ethics, responsible corporate citizenship, and promoting mutually beneficial partnerships.
