In a typical vanpool, seven to fifteen commuters ride together, each contributing a low monthly fee that gets them a seat in the van and covers all maintenance, repairs and insurance. Not only is the cost of gas spread out among all the riders, each person saves the wear and tear on their car. Your car won’t depreciate as fast or need maintenance as often. Vanpools are comfortable and usually have a dedicated driver, meaning you can relax and enjoy a stress free commute. Score.
