A vanpool is made up of five to fifteen people who commute together in a passenger van. One or more members of the group volunteer to drive, with the cost of operating the van split evenly among the group.
The monthly fee includes: a brand new vehicle, bumper to bumper maintenance, million dollar liability insurance, 24-hour roadside assistance, loaner/back up van, program administration, and 24-hour customer service. The lease agreement is month-to-month, with no long-term commitment.

Vanpooling is ideal for people with longer commutes, with usual distances from work of at least 15 miles one way. The longer your commute, the more economical a vanpool tends to be. Likewise, the more riders in the van, the less each rider pays, since costs are shared evenly.
