CARPOOLING

 

carpool What is Carpooling?

Carpooling is when two or more people ride together to a destination in the same vehicle. Carpooling to work saves money and time on your commute as well as reducing stress.

 

How Do You Save?

Once you receive your ridematches, team up with at least one for your drive to work and cut your commuting costs. The more people in your carpool, the lower your expense! Either divide the commuting expenses by the number of people in the group or rotate driving responsibilities each week. As a plus, if you have a carpool of 3 or more people you can use the 95 Express Lanes for FREE.

 

Remember, you do not have to carpool everyday. Consider starting off by trying it only a few days a week!

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.

 

The monthly fee includes: a brand new vehicle, bumper to bumper maintenance, million dollar liability insurance, 24-hour roadside assistance, loaner/back up van, program administration, and 24-hour customer service. The lease agreement is month-to-month, with no long-term commitment.

How Do You Save?

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.
