Vanpooling in the Mid-Columbia River Gorge: A Feasibility Assessment and Investigation of Employer Preferences
The Mid-Columbia Economic Development District, in partnership with the University of Oregon, completed a vanpool feasibility study and survey of large employers in the Mid-Columbia region. Businesses and organizations with over 80 employees were surveyed to assess perceptions and support of vanpool program structures, incentive options, potential benefits and concerns. The study includes a benefit-cost analysis that considers potential reductions in fuel use, emissions, accidents, and other results of decreases in Single-Occupancy-Vehicle use.
