What is a Vanpool?

Vanpools are groups of 5-15 commuters with a similar origin, destination and schedule who get together and lease a vehicle and share the costs of commuting to work. The lease includes all costs such as insurance and maintenance. One or more of the vanpool participants is designated as the driver. Contact us for more information and help with forming or coordinating a vanpool group.
