VVTA Vanpool

Commute For $35 A Week? VVTA Regional Vanpool Program allows groups of seven or more to commute for as low as $35 a week. Vanpool is convenient, comfortable, and saves money through a subsidy of up to $400 per month.

GETTING STARTED

VVTA Regional Vanpool Program is convenient, cost-effective, and stress free. New and existing vanpools are eligible for the program subsidy. You or your employer may lease a vehicle through one of our three qualified vendors, Commute with Enterprise, Green Commuter and Airport Van Rental (AVR). Specially-equipped, commuter-friendly leased vehicles include maintenance, roadside assistance, and insurance. Drivers may even use the vehicle to log personal miles during after hours and throughout the weekend. VVTA Vanpool has its own advanced web-based application that makes the application and reporting process simple, when other agencies still require paper, pen, snail mail and phone calls to maintain eligibility. Vanpools must meet all program rules and guidelines to qualify for the program subsidy. VVTA staff makes the decision regarding which applications are approved, as well as which monthly subsidies will be approved for payment.
