Carpooling is simply two or more people traveling together in one vehicle to their destination. Carpooling is easy because few people are involved, a carpool is flexible, and it can usually accommodate everyone’s needs.
A vanpool has benefits similar to a carpool but is a group of six to 12 people with similar commutes of 20 to 80 miles to and from work who share a comfortable van provided by the VanGo™ Vanpool Program.
They usually live and work in approximately the same areas and work roughly the same hours. Vanpool members pay a monthly fee that helps cover the costs of the van, fuel, maintenance and insurance.
