Eva, a Montreal ridehail company, joins the STM, BIXI, Communauto, and Uber as the newest option in the Transit app for riders across the city
April 26, 2022
Starting today, Transit riders in the Montreal area can count on a new ridehail option to plan their trips. The Montreal cooperative Eva is now integrated into the app. This means that the thousands of Montrealers who use Transit every day can view and compare the real-time arrival times of Eva and other options nearby, plan direct trips from point A to B or by combining Eva with other modes of transportation, and book a ride. To celebrate the launch, users get a $5 discount on their first Eva trip when they request it through Transit.
This new local mobility option in Montreal joins traditional public transit, BIXI bikes and Communauto vehicles already available in Transit, creating a wide range of sustainable and local choices for the public. In addition, it is possible to find out the price of trips in advance and compare them with trips combining several modes of transportation, directly in Transit‘s trip planner. Transit users can choose the trip and price that suits them best, which is becoming more and more important as the return to the office and the increase in the cost of living and gas prices are causing many people to rethink their commuting habits.
As a Montreal-based company itself, Transit is keen to shine a light on local options, including Eva, in its app:
“Since our beginnings in 2012, we’ve had the goal of simplifying car-free travel for our users,” says Sam Vermette, CEO at Transit. “I’m proud to collaborate with other local companies, like Eva, who are contributing to Montreal’s reputation as a city of innovation in the sustainable mobility sector.”
Launched in Montreal in 2019, Eva quickly became the second most popular ride-sharing app in Quebec. The pandemic led it to diversify its activities by adding delivery to its services. Today, it remains a mobility option of choice, encouraging the local economy through its cooperative model. The members, drivers and passengers, decide together on pricing, commissions and internal policies.
“Offering our carpooling services through Transit makes sense,” says Dardan Isufi, COO at Eva, adding that “like Transit, Eva is a Montreal-based platform that aims to improve urban mobility in a sustainable and innovative way. Montreal is therefore a fertile ground for such a collaboration.”
You can download Eva and Transit for free on the App Store, Google Play and at eva.coop et transitapp.com.
