Vanpools are a flexible, comfortable, cost-effective way for small to medium size groups of up to 15 commuters to share rides to and from work. Vanpooling can reduce stress, shorten your commute time, and save annual commuting costs. Participants share expenses for fuel and for a vehicle, which can be provided by an employer, a third-party administrator, or the vanpoolers themselves.

If you are interested in starting or joining a vanpool at your place of business or to connect with others looking to share rides, visit the following resources:
