Commute Options has partnered with Cascades East Transit and Commute with Enterprise to startnew vanpools into and out of Deschutes County
Vanpooling offers benefits to your business and your employees. A van makes it easy for your employees to share a ride to and from work—connecting people who live near each other. Your employees save money, get back time for themselves and arrive in a better state of mind. And, fewer solo drivers will help your company reduce carbon emissions and parking congestion
If you have 5+ people who share a similar commute and schedule, you can create a vanpool. Enterprise will provide an SUV or Van. Each rider pays a set fee per month, which covers all the costs, like gas, insurance, repairs – everything! Commute Options has funds to help groups buy down the cost of the monthly lease.
