Vanpools need to maintain an average of at least five riders per day. Since not everyone rides every day, you'll need seven or eight riders in the vanpool. A few must also be willing to drive. Vanpool drivers must have good driving records. We provide driver orientation and serve as your contact regarding van maintenance and other details.
vanpool makes its own plan regarding driver schedule, how many riders they’ll
accept, seat assignments, where they’ll meet and drop off, etc. Riders also
agree on a backup plan in case drivers are unavailable, etc. We can help vanpools establish their internal
plans. Riders also sign a vanpool
agreement with WTA.
Yes. We ask for at least a six-month commitment.
We offer 12 and 15 passenger vans. Fares are the same regardless of the van's size.
Because the costs are shared, vanpooling is significantly less expensive than driving alone, especially for long commutes. In addition to the cost of fuel, passengers save the cost of maintenance, repairs and general wear and tear. Many vanpoolers find it less stressful than driving as well.
Employers can choose to help with employee's fares by offering a pre-tax payroll deduction. Employers can also choose to subsidize the fares. Many employers in our current program provide these types of support. Employers also have the option of helping to promote or coordinate the vanpools.
