Sharing the ride - and the expense - in a carpool or vanpool

What employers can do:

  • Set aside reserved or priority parking for carpools and vanpools
  • Post ridematch wanted announcements on company bulletin board or website
  • Reduce the cost of vanpool fare for employees
    • Allow employees to use pre-tax income to purchase their own vanpool pass
    • Provide a financial benefit toward cost of monthly vanpool pass or annual transit pass on ORCA for employees
    • Offer reduced cost or free parking for vanpools 
  • Provide a guaranteed ride home in case of emergency
