Who’s in the van?

Primary Driver

The primary driver is in charge of maintaining the logistics of the pool and has the added benefit of taking the van home for personal use.

Alternate Driver

Drive when you want to. Step up as driver when needed. When you’re not behind the wheel, sit back and relax, spending your time whatever way you want.

Rider

Sign up and ride! All vRiders enjoy saving money, making friends, sleeping, or even working. Embrace your new way to work and save your personal vehicle for non-commuting uses.

Find the commute that’s right for you.

Vanpool

Park and Ride
Our vanpool has been in existence since January, 2006. We have a seven passenger van that travels between Farmington Hills, Michigan and downtown Detroit, a distance of about 23 miles. Forming our group was relatively easy since we all met while riding the bus from our suburban starting point to virtually the same area downtown. We are fortunate that all in our group work within two city blocks of each other, so pick-up and delivery couldn’t be easier. All who joined our group were looking for the same things in commuting: convenience, comfort, controlling expenses, and helping the environment by eliminating so many cars from streets and freeways. As it happened, one of our younger riders, Vicki, was suddenly going to be displaced from the apartment in which she and her husband lived. They would now be in the market for their first home. All in our group agreed that we wanted Vicki to stay with us and we took on the project of finding a residence close enough to our van route so we wouldn’t lose her as a vanpooler and friend. Some of us, including me, went scouting on weekends and in the evenings by bicycle, motorcycle, by car, and on foot. We scoured close-by neighborhoods, looking for likely house candidates. We compiled quite a selection, but as it turned out, Vicki found a place on her own that was within a very short drive from our starting-point. I like to believe that she was thinking along the same lines as we were; that her first priority was to remain within our cohesive group, and all other location considerations were secondary. I am pleased to announce that Vicki and her husband, Matt, took possession of their new home in July and our vanpool group will remain intact. It’s sometimes hard to make new friends, so we should do all we can to keep the old ones.
