Start a great new savings plan

Commuting to work in a vanpool saves the average commuter $1200.00 a year or more, compared to the cost of driving alone. If you want to save on gas, vehicle maintenance, parking, insurance, and wear and tear on your personal vehicle, then consider vRide as your transportation solution.

A vanpool is a group of 5 to 15 people who commute to and from work on a regular basis in a roomy, comfortable vehicle. vRide provides the vehicle, comprehensive maintenance and repair program, insurance and back-up vehicles. The group shares the monthly vehicle and fuel expense, saving them approximately 50% off their current drive alone commute cost. It’s that simple!!!

Why you should vanpool:

  • Save an average of $1200 per year versus driving alone
  • Reduce wear and tear on personal vehicle and save on personal auto insurance
  • Escape the daily grind of traffic congestion while sleeping or checking email
  • Get to work faster using HOV lanes
  • Contribute directly to improving the environment
  • Commute more safely
