Remix was founded in 2014 in San Francisco, CA as a grassroots, easy-to-use 
transit planning platform. The company secured investments from Sequoia, Y 
Combinator, and Energy Impact Partners to quickly expand and provide 
collaborative technology for planning public transit, managing shared mobility, 
and designing safer street networks. Today, Remix works with 350+ local 
governments in 22 countries across five continents and is used to design 
hundreds of city transportation systems, improving the lives of more than 240 
million people worldwide.

Via has pioneered the TransitTech category by providing the digital 
infrastructure for public mobility systems, optimizing networks of dynamic 
shuttles, buses, wheelchair accessible vehicles, school buses, and autonomous 
vehicles to meet the needs of large cities and smaller communities around the 
world. The company works with more than 200 partners in 24 countries to provide 
efficient, accessible, and cost effective transit solutions. This acquisition 
brings together complementary capabilities to help transportation planning, 
innovation, and operations teams respond to changing demands, often in 
real-time. Together, Via and Remix can help cities and agencies use technology 
to be flexible, resilient, and responsive. 

"We have always held the Remix product in the highest regard, and are delighted 
to be working with Tiffany, Dan, and their exceptional team," said Via 
Co-Founders Daniel Ramot and Oren Shoval. "We share a vision for working 
alongside our partners to create transit systems that are equitable, 
accessible, and efficient for riders and cities alike. Together, we have 
ambitious plans to invest in and expand the Remix product suite to offer 
enhanced capabilities for planning and bus scheduling and operations." 

Remix CEO and co-founder Tiffany Chu said, "Remix's mission is to create more 
livable cities by expanding access within them. We are excited to join forces 
with Via, a company equally focused on increasing access by improving 
transportation options available to communities, and empowering cities with 
best-in-class technology for data-driven decision-making. The acquisition marks 
a new era for our customers, partners, and team." 

The acquisition represents an important milestone for the transportation 
community, bringing together key capabilities that provide cities and agencies
