Vanpools are a great option for commuters traveling longer distances.
Visit our COVID-19 Safety Tips page to learn more about staying safe while vanpooling.
Typical vanpools have 5 to 15 members and travel 20 miles or more between work and home. The costs are shared between the members, and participants may take on driving or coordination duties for a discount on their share of the costs. The most common vanpool arrangements are coordinated through public programs, or with third party vendors that provide services to employers or individual commuters.
Use the Get There tool to find an existing vanpool in Oregon, or check out the list below for links and information about vendors and public vanpool programs:
