What is a vanpool?
A vanpool is a mode of public transportation comprised of a group of commuters who agree to share their ride to work in a vehicle large enough to accommodate a minimum of seven people. The driver for each vanpool is a volunteer within the commuter group. The Nebraska Department of Transportation has contracted with Commute with Enterprise to bring a statewide vanpool program to Nebraska.
Vanpooling is available all across the state of Nebraska. Costs vary based on number of miles, number of commuters, etc. in your vanpool. Go NEWhere Vanpools offer up to a $400 monthly subsidy to each vanpool, significantly reducing the out-of-pocket costs for riders. Accessible vehicles that meet the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) are available to commuters with a verified disability.
Vanpool members receive the following benefits in one low, monthly rate:
- Reliable, well-equipped vehicle providing all the creature comforts of a luxury vehicle
