Vanpool Incentive Program


Vanpool Incentive Program is now the second largest vanpool program in the country. The vanpool program provides passenger vans to small groups of 5-14 people traveling together to and from work. Each rider pays a low monthly fare based on distance and number of participants. Fares cover all costs of the vanpool. Vanpool is an excellent transit solution in areas where population density cannot support fixed route bus service.
