What is vanpooling?

A vanpool is made up of five to fifteen people who commute together in a passenger van. One or more members of the group volunteer to drive, with the cost of operating the van split evenly among the group.

Vanpooling is ideal for people with longer commutes, with usual distances from work of at least 15 miles one way. The longer your commute, the more economical a vanpool tends to be. Likewise, the more riders in the van, the less each rider pays, since costs are shared evenly. In addition, the Palm Beach County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) provides a $400 per month subsidy toward a vanpool lease costs to groups that qualify.

For additional information about vanpooling, contact Patricia Cox with South Florida Vanpools at 561-478-5743 or visit the South Florida Vanpool website.
