Vanpool Etiquette
Vanpooling sounds like a great idea but you want to make sure it's right for you? Check out the guidelines below. They're typical rules of the road for folks that rideshare. If you agree with the principles and can follow these simple courtesies - you'd make a great vanpool participant!

Rules Of The Road - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Know where your pick-up point is and always meet the van on time. Remember, as many as 14 other riders are counting on you. Most vanpool groups set a time limit on how long they'll wait.
Know who to contact, when to contact, and how to contact the designated individual if you won't be riding on any given trip. Make sure you have the appropriate phone numbers and e-mail address.
Be prompt with your prorated share of the total monthly vanpool payment. Make sure you know who to pay and what the preferred form of payment is.
Most vanpoolers decide as a group if the radio will be played and on what station.
Many groups assign seats based on some agreed upon format (seniority, pick up/drop off origin, etc.), while some groups rotate seats on a regular basis. Know what your group does and stick to the plan.
Follow the Golden Rule. Simply treat your fellow passengers as you yourself would like to be treated.
