What is a Vanpool?

MORPC’s Gohio Commute Vanpool program is an affordable and convenient public transportation service that enables commuters with similar trip origins and destinations to share rides – thereby reducing their commuting costs, decreasing traffic congestion, and improving air quality.

Commuters who go to work together on a regular basis in a 7 OR 15 passenger van or SUV provided by our program. Riders share an affordable monthly fee that covers the use of a van, insurance, maintenance, roadside assistance, and fuel card.

Often companies will provide our vanpool program as a commuter benefit and will provide a subsidy to offset some of the seat cost.


According to AAA’s Cost of Commuting, the average vanpooler saves thousands of dollars on annual commuting costs when switching from driving alone!
