Vanpool Program Saves Commuters Money, Time

The OC Vanpool Program helps commuters share the ride with others who work and live in similar areas.

Vanpools offer a great way to save money, time and stress by sharing a vehicle and commuting with others. OCTA offers a $400 subsidy per month to help offset the vehicle lease cost for those who commute in Orange County.

During fiscal year 2017-18, OCTA operated 538 vanpools, serving 93 Orange County employers at 119 worksites and taking more than 2,000 single occupant vehicles off county roads and freeways. In addition, an estimate by the South Coast Air Quality Management District indicates that these vanpools eliminated 11,500 tons of greenhouse emissions.

OC Vanpool offers many advantages to both commuters and employers. Learn more here.
