Vanpool

Vanpooling is an excellent alternative to driving alone.

Vanpools are cost-effective for groups of six or more commuters who travel more than 15 miles each way. Drivers and passengers follow a route and schedule they decide upon together. Spend your time riding instead of driving to work with a restful, relaxing commute. No worries about traffic... no worries about vehicle reliability... no worries about getting to work on time.

To find an existing vanpool, look in Commuter Club or the TMA Vanpool Seats Available page. If you find a vanpool from your home that has a seat available, ask the coordinator about the van's "rules." If you decide to start a new vanpool, Vanpoolyou and the riders in the van will meet in advance to develop your rules.

Vanpool providers

In Sacramento, we have two full service commuter vanpool leasing companies that lease vans, provide insurance, roadside maintenance and help fill seats. Contact below for information or assistance forming a vanpool:

Vanpools save commute costs

You can save hundreds of dollars each year by commuting in a vanpool. Some employers (including the State of California) provide the same subsidy to employees who drive or ride in vanpools as that given to transit riders.

An Incentive program at the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) will subsidize newly-formed vanpools operating in the Sacramento Region - Sacramento, Yolo, Yuba, Sutter, El Dorado, and Placer Counties - for a six-month initial period. This is a $2,000 value! This incentive to vanpool is offered on a first-come, first-served basis to any qualifying vanpool that has signed agreements with SACOG and a participating vanpool vendor. For information go to http://www.sacregion511.org/.

Vanpool ground rules

Every vanpool has worked out the details of commuting in their van. Some have a section of the commute during which there is no talking, (especially in the early morning). Other groups become such friends during the commute time that the vanpool stays together for years. The people in the van agree on the following details:
