Here are just a few examples:
In Phoenix, VPSI provides vanpool management and related services to the commuters of Maricopa County on behalf of the Regional Public Transportation Authority (RPTA). The RPTA subsidizes over 1/3 of the total cost of vanpooling making it a very attractive alternative to driving alone. The region also provides support through the construction of HOV (High Occupancy Vehicle) lanes and Park and Ride lots across the county.
Vanpooling is supported statewide by the Department of Transportation (DOT). On the island of Oahu, the DOT's support has lead to the development of flat-rate fares. Any seat, on any route is just $50. Commuters know that Vanpool Hawaii is the only way to go!
The Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County (METRO) and the Houston-Galveston Area Council (HGAC) have teamed up to encourage vanpooling by providing a monthly subsidy of $35 for each vanpool passenger. Passengers in vanpools formed throughout Harris, Brazoria, Chambers, Fort Bend, Galveston, Liberty, Montgomery and Waller counties are eligible for the vanpool subsidy program. The region also provides support through the use of HOV (High Occupancy Vehicle) lanes and Park and Ride lots.
Brevard County, Florida
Vanpoolers in the Space Coast Area Transit district ride in vehicles owned by the Brevard County Board of County Commissioners! As a result, participants share only in the operating cost of the vanpool making vanpooling in Brevard County one of the best deals going for vanpoolers across the country.
South Florida Vanpool Program
In south Florida, the local Miami - Dade County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and South Florida Commuter Services (SCFS) have teamed up to provide vanpoolers an incredible deal. The program is open to anyone commuting from or into Dade County, and eligible vanpool groups receive a $400 incentive toward their monthly vanpool rate.
