Vanpool

Save Money on Your Commute to Work, and Start a Vanpool

A vanpool involves 7-15 commuters who use a van owned by a third-party leasing agency or possibly their own. Normally, a vanpool includes a vehicle provider or owner, who also handles fee collection, a primary driver, who maintains the vehicle and drives most of the time, and one or more alternate drivers, who drive the van when the primary driver is ill or on vacation. The use of the van, as well as maintenance, insurance, 24-hour roadside assistance and toll-free support is also included in the monthly vanpool fee.
