Save Even More with a Vanpool
Get a lot less pain at the pump with vanpooling! If your commute is more than 25 miles one way to work, a vanpool could be a great commute solution. RideShare can help you get started by identifying potential vanpool participants who share your commute pattern. The cost of the vanpool will be determined by the number of riders, distance traveled, and total gas costs. If your employer offers pre-tax transit benefits or subsidies, your costs are even lower!
Start or Join a Vanpool
Vanpools are ideal for 6 or more passengers, and a full van results in the lowest fares because more riders share the costs. Vanpools also receive:
- Insurance for drivers, riders and vans
- Convenient service locations for van maintenance
- 24-hour roadside assistance
- A fuel debit card for use at major gas stations and for EZ Pass tolls (optional)
- Preferred parking at some worksites
RideShare Delaware registered commuters are eligible for Guaranteed Ride Home. If an unexpected event (like unscheduled overtime or an illness) happens on a day that you share the ride to work and keeps you from taking your normal ride home, you will be reimbursed for the alternate transportation you take home, up to five times a year.
While RideShare Delaware doesn’t provide administration or vehicles for vanpools, we can help you connect with other riders to form or add to a vanpool. Plus, you’ll be eligible for monthly rewards when recording your commute with us. Vanpooling companies in Delaware include:
