Vanpool

About Vanpool

 
A vanpool is a better way to travel to and from work. It consists of 5-15 people who commute together on a regular basis. One person volunteers to be the driver/coordinator of the vanpool and often rides for free. The riders share the cost of operating the vanpool. The group determines their daily schedule and route including one or more designated pick up locations.
The benefits of vanpool may include: 
  • Less stress commuting to and from work
  • Financial savings due to shared commuting costs
  • Reduces need for parking
  • Increases free time for riders
  • If an HOV lane is available, trips may take less time
  • Reduces pollution due to auto emissions
  • EligibilIty to receive tax-free transportation benefits from your employer
