If you’re looking for a more environmentally conscious and cost-effective way to commute long distances, vanpooling may be the solution. A vanpool is typically a group of seven or more commuters who share the ride and travel costs by leasing a van or using a personal van or SUV. Vanpooling benefits may include discounted parking permits for the van, free bridge tolls and additional employer benefits.
You can start your own vanpool or join an existing vanpool. New vanpools may be eligible for TAM’s $3,600 incentive, distributed at $150/month over a two-year period.
Vanpools must meet eligibility requirements such as have an origin or destination in Marin County, and complete the required consecutive months of operation.
