Would you like to take your commute a step further and participate in a vanpool? A vanpool consists of 9-14 people who meet at a convenient location each morning and ride into work together. They agree to leave at the same time each evening and ride home together as well. The vans are insured and are available for limited personal use. There are many vanpools in place across the Commonwealth (many originate in New Hampshire for MVTMA commuters who cross state lines every day)
Contact us for more information or to find a vanpool near you
Did you know?
- A 25-mile commute costs about $2,000 annually in gas alone. By alternating the days you drive to work, you stand to save roughly $1,000 – and that’s before you factor in tolls, depreciation, and any parking costs. Bring a third buddy, and the savings climb to $1,300!
- Statewide leaving the car at home and taking another way (ride share, transit, bike or walk) has annually saved 23 million driving miles annually and kept more than 10,000 tons of pollution out of the air we breathe!
