Commuter Connect Vanpool

A vanpool consists of 5-15 people commuting from similar origins to similar destinations each workday. The van is provided through Commuter Connect and passengers pay a monthly fare which secures their seat in the van.

Commuter Connect partners with Commute with Enterprise to provide all vanpool vehicles.

Monthly fares include the following items:

  • License and Registration Fees
  • Liability, Collision and Comprehensive Insurance
  • Scheduled Preventive Maintenance
  • Unscheduled Vehicle Repairs and Tires
  • 24/7 Customer Service Support (local staff assistance for vanpool emergencies)
  • Optional Fuel Card Program
