What is a Vanpool?

Vanpools are a convenient, reliable and cost-effective choice for those who live 15 or more miles from work and maintain a consistent schedule. Similar to Carpools, Vanpool members travel together in one vehicle. Rather than driving personal vehicles, members share the expense of a leased commuter van, minivan or SUV. Vanpools can begin with as few as four commuters.
