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.
