Employer Information

How do your employees get to and from work? More employers are realizing the benefits of utilizing public transportation. One component of this is Pace's Pace Vanpool (VIP). No matter what your company size or location, Pace's VIP can be tailored to meet the needs of your employees.


There are a number of benefits to having employees participate in vanpooling...

  • reduces tardiness and keeps absenteeism down by providing a relaxing, affordable, and reliable way for your employees to travel
  • reduces the number of cars at the worksite, freeing up valuable parking spaces
  • expands your labor pool by increasing access to your facility
  • adds a benefit to offer your employees at no cost to you
Employers may offer additional benefits to the program for no cost such as...
  • preferred parking
  • guaranteeing the driver & rider deposits
  • participating in the Commuter Choice Benefits Program, in which employees pay fares with pre-tax dollars through payroll deduction
  • employer saves money on FICA and unemployment tax
Pace can provide all the assistance you need. We will introduce VIP to your employees, help encourage participation, and administer the program.
