As one of the largest employment centers in the state, finding a Vanpool can be quick and easy with help from your Employee Transportation Coordinator (ETC) and RideShareOnline.com, the statewide ridematching system. Generally, a Vanpool is made up of a group of 7-12 people who share their commute in a larger vehicle. Start a Vanpool with as few as 5 people, or join an existing van. Vanpools set their own schedules, design the route and designate pick-up and drop-off points – a custom-made commute! Many companies help subsidize Vanpool fares and have already started several Vanpools, so contact your ETC to get more information.
Among the many advantages of Vanpooling are:
- Vanpooling is often the cheapest option available to you, monthly fares are often lower than even the bus!
- Vanpooling saves time and reduces stress through use of the high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane.
- Vanpooling lessens harmful carbon emissions from driving. Each new person in a Vanpool means another car off the road, and is a huge win for clean, healthy air.
- You may meet fellow co-workers and neighbors through carpooling.
