Vanpools are a rideshare service that allows people who are traveling to and from the same locations to ride together in a van. Vanpools carry on average seven to fifteen passenges and may operate on weekdays, traveling from one or two common pick-up locations. These are usually a park and ride lot or a transit location, or the workplace. By having more people using one vehicle, vanpools reduce each person's travel costs, such as fuel, tolls, and the stress of driving. This type of commuting is environmentally-friendly and sustainable way to travel, as sharing journeys reduces carbon emissions, traffic congestion on the roads, and the need for parking spaces.
