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.
