A vanpool lease is available to commuters who live at least 10 miles from their workplace and agree to share their daily commute to and from work. A driver and at least eight commuters are required to start a new vanpool (*mini vans also available).
All riders, except the driver, must agree to pay a monthly fare based on the number of riders and the daily round trip mileage.
Vanpool drivers typically ride free and are allowed limited personal use of the van at no additional cost. New drivers are given orientation and training and receive on-going support in management of the vanpool. The driver operates the van, collects monthly fares, and completes a daily passenger count and mileage log.
Congratulations to the PART Transportation Demand Management program and Vanpool participants for receiving the 2009 Safety Excellence Award from Lancer Insurance. This honor is achieved only by policyholders whose safety record reflects safety excellence for that calendar year.
