Vanpool makes it possible for groups of five to 15 persons to share a ride to work while splitting the cost of van rental and fuel.

Why use VIAWorks Vanpool?

  • It eliminates driving a personal vehicle and reduces gasoline and emissions.
  • It saves parking costs and traffic hassles.
  • It’s tax-free for riders if done as a payroll deduction.
  • Vanpool drivers may keep the van during evenings and weekends, in exchange for keeping a daily log and managing the group’s finances and scheduled maintenance.
  • It offers an attractive benefits package on behalf of employers.
  • There is always a guaranteed ride home in case of emergency with VIAWorks and the Alamo Commutes Emergency Ride Home program.

How does vanpooling work?
