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
My story begins nearly 20 years ago. I was just out of college and was living in San Bruno, California and working in San Francisco. Because of the cost of commuting and the running condition of my 15+ year old car, I started to ride the Sam Trans Bus to work. A few years later, I was transferred to a new job in San Ramon and so I moved to the closest town my small salary could afford. I ended up in Fremont but soon found out that my commute was going to be a real problem. That was when a co-worker mentioned the vanpool program that was available and how nice it was just to sit and let someone else do the driving. I decided to try it and instantly found that it was really nice to be able to read a book or converse with my fellow riders and leave the driving hassle to someone else. I never looked back and so, as of this year, I have been riding/driving in a vanpool since 1987. Over the years, I increased my involvement with the vanpool program and back in 2000, I began as a full time driver for our van which runs from Vacaville to Concord. The original reasons why I joined the Vanpool program are still there. I am able to save at least $200+ in my monthly commute and I don’t have to depend on my 13 year old minivan to get me to work. This year, VPSI delivered a brand new 2007 full-size vanpool van to me and now I can say that my commute is the best it’s ever been. I make sure that I keep it clean and in good shape. I will continue to participate in the vanpool program as long as I continue to work which should be for another 15 years or so.
