Leave your car at home to carpool, vanpool, ride the bus or light rail, telework, bicycle or walk. Benefits include:

  • Easy. Finding a partner to share the commute is fast and easy on

  • Convenient. Carpoolers and vanpoolers create their own arrangements to best meet their commute needs.

  • Save Money. Share the cost of gas and parking. Reduce miles driven to save on insurance and maintenance expense. Federal law may also allow you to pay vanpool fares from pre-tax dollars. Add more people to your vehicle to increase the savings!

  • Save Time. Get there faster thanks to quick-moving and less congested High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes.

  • Reduce Stress. With someone else behind the wheel, you can sleep, read or relax.

  • Help the Environment. With fewer cars on the road, emissions of pollution are reduced. Your choice helps reduce traffic and improve Valley air quality.

  • Many Choices. Carpooling, vanpooling, bicycling and teleworking may be good options if you don't have access to bus or light rail. These options are flexible to meet family and work schedule needs.
