Sustainability

A vRide vanpool is your green machine. Each van can take up to 14 cars off the road—meaning less traffic and less pollution. For companies, this is a great opportunity to bolster your corporate responsibility and sustainability plans.

Gain Time

Instead of fighting traffic, sit back, relax, and spend your commute appreciating your best career decision yet. vRide vans are eligible for HOV lanes to further reduce your commute time.

Federal Tax Incentives and Grant Assistance

Employee vanpools are often eligible for federal funding and subsidies. Vanpooling, by defnition saves money. Tax breaks, deductions, and incentive programs are monthly and yearly financial bonuses that rapidly add up.

Case Studies

Aerospace
The South Florida Vanpool Program [operated by VPSI] has been a real benefit! The cost savings alone makes the venture well worth the effort. The ability to convert travel time to work time provides a dramatic improvement to time efficiency, and catching an occasional power nap isn’t so bad either. Indeed, the money saved is tremendous! A one hour and a half round trip time five days a week at four weeks a month on average would cost approximately $546.00 in gas and tolls alone. Add in oil changes, tires, brakes, and general auto maintenance, and this amount would grow significantly. With eight riders pooling their funds, the cost per person per month becomes $140.00; this is a monthly savings of well over $400.00. In addition, with the ridership splitting the driving responsibilities, a person on our van could complete up to 7.5 hours a week of computer work or whatever during the commute time. Almost 38 hours a month of working late or coming into the office early could now be spent on personal time. The workaholics in our group really benefit from this! Lastly, I have been known to catch a badly needed power knap from time to time during our commute (not while driving of course). Forty five minutes here and there helps to catch up on that sleep deficit from a busy weekend. Everyone needs to re-charge those batteries once in a while! Without doubt, the decision to start a vanpool has been a no-brainer! The money savings, the time efficiency improvements, and power knaps continue to be a tremendous improvement over commuting solo to and from the office!
