Commuting in your own car driving you batty– and broke? But you don’t think the
bus will work for you, either? Consider a better way to work. VIA Vanpool.
Vanpooling eliminates driving, greatly reduces gasoline and parking costs, traffic
hassles, vehicle emissions– and lets you arrive at work or home more rested and
relaxed. If an emergency arises and you need to go home early or work late, there’s
a Guaranteed Ride Home option.
How does Vanpooling Work?
At least 6 people share the ride to work, while splitting the cost of van rental
and fuel. Vans are available in 7, 12 and 15 passenger models and are rented month-to-month–so
the more passengers who ride, the cheaper it is. One member of the group drives
and maintains the van in return for riding free.
