OCTA Helps Form New Vanpools to Reduce Car Traffic and Pollution

Since the beginning of the year, OCTA has helped form 70 vanpools, a 9.39 percent rise that represents the biggest year-over-year increase since 2010. OCTA began assisting companies and individuals with vanpool formation in 2007.

OCTA’s in-service vanpool count reached 500 for the first time in mid-August. These 500 vanpools take roughly 2,500 cars off the road daily. In addition, each vanpool eliminates 12,500 pounds of CO2 per month, or roughly 75.8 billion pounds per year.

OCTA helps both employers and individual commuters with their vanpool plans and also provides an incentive of $400 per month for each van. Visit octa.net to learn more or contact Kristopher Hewkin at khewkin@octa.net or (714) 560-5331.
