    Imagine a de-stressed commute that saves you money and time. Vanpools deliver all that and more. Count on OCTA to help you set up or join a vanpool and provide monetary assistance.

    A vanpool is a group of people who save money ($250 or more per person per month often), time and stress on their commute by combining resources to lease a vehicle* and then drive it to work together on a daily basis.

    This “super carpool” requires only five riders, designated pickup location(s) and similar work destinations and work schedules. Commuters who live 15 miles or more from their worksite are prime candidates for this program.

    How does OCTA help?

    To increase your savings, OCTA offers $400 worth of assistance per month per vanpool for those with worksites in Orange County**. This covers roughly 30-50% of the monthly lease cost.

    Are vanpools popular?

    There are roughly 500 vanpools with worksites in Orange County from over 85 different employers.

    *Vehicle must contain 7 or more seats (although only 5 riders are needed) and be leased through vRide or Enterprise Rideshare to qualify for program
    ** Vanpools that originate in Orange County with destinations in Riverside or San Bernardino counties are also eligible
