Vanpools like carpooling, carry from seven to fifteen passengers. Vanpools typically operate weekdays, traveling between pick-up locations and the workplace. Pricing varies based on the size of the van, the round-trip distance, and the type of equipment in a van. Amenities could include on-board Wi-fi, luxury seats and bike racks.
Compared to the cost of driving long distances alone, vanpooling will save on average 50-75%. (Enterprise Rideshare FAQ)

If you’re a frequent vanpool commuter, participating in a commuter benefit program, offered by your employer, saves you money and time.
