Start a new vanpool

  • You'll need at least five riders, including two drivers and a bookkeeper, to start a new vanpool.
  • You can recruit coworkers, neighbors, and fellow commuters using our regional ride matching service, message boards, and social media. Your work site may also offer programs and services to help you find interested commuters.
  • Download the Starter Kit and submit your roster when you're ready to apply.

Vanpool Cost

  • Vanpool Fares are based on your daily round trip miles and the size of your van, and split by the number of riders.
  • Some employers will pay toward the cost of your fare. Check with your employer to find out if you are eligible for commuter vanpool benefits.
