Vanpools are another form of Ridesharing. Vanpools hold more passengers than a carpool, and tend to be most common for longer distance commutes (10 to 15 miles or more). Typically, one or more members of the vanpool is a designated driver, and members share the costs of travel, including insurance, fuel, and maintenance of the van. Employers and employees can take advantage of an IRS Commuter Tax Credit program to participate in qualified vanpool programs. For more information see our flyer and also IRS Publication 15-b.
