Van Pools

What is a Vanpool?

A vanpool is a better way to travel to and from work. A vanpool is a group of 7-15 people who commute on a regular basis in a roomy, comfortable van. One person volunteers to be the driver/coordinator of the vanpool and normally rides free. The riders share the cost of operating the vanpool. The vanpool group determines their daily schedule and route. Riders meet at a designated pick-up location, such as a Park 'n Ride lot or a shopping center. There may be more than one meeting place if the group agrees.

Who Vanpools?

  • Thousands of smart commuters ride in vanpools everyday
  • People who have at least a 30 minute drive or travel more than 15 miles one-way to work. People who maintain a relatively consistent work schedule 
  • People who love and work near, or along the route of, 7 to 15 other people who are willing to share the ride in a van

Why Vanpool?

  • Save money: Vanpoolers save an average of $800 a yaer or more compared to the cost of driving alone. Plus, you spend less for gas, parking, repair and maintenance on your own vehicle
  • Save time: A vanpool can use the (HOV) High Occupancy Vehicle Lanes. This can significantly reduce the time spent commuting to and from work each day 
  • Save your sanity: You don't have to fight traffic congestion. In a vanpool you can sleep, read and relax on your commute to and from work 
  • Save on air: One vanpool removes as many as 14 vehicles and their emissions from the road each day. That's good for you and for the environment.
