Vanpools deliver valuable benefits for enterprises and commuters alike
A growing number of enterprises are reaping the rewards of offering vanpools. These rideshare programs offer a long list of benefits to commuters, including major reductions in the costs associated with using single-occupancy vehicles to get to and from work. Vanpools help employees save on fuel and reduce wear and tear on their vehicles. The American Automobile Association (AAA) notes that commuters can save as much as $800 per month by using a vanpool rideshare program, to say nothing of the reduced stress that comes with letting someone else do the driving.
Vanpools benefit enterprises and businesses as well. Research shows that commuters who use shared transportation options to get to work are more productive and report higher levels of job satisfaction. Offering a vanpool program is also a great way for businesses to promote forward-thinking values, which can help them attract and retain more talented employees. They also help reduce demand for parking, which can lead to dramatic cost savings on the business end of the equation.
However, vanpools only work if commuters are easily able to connect with the services they offer. By using a comprehensive commuter management platform like RideAmigos to make routes, schedules, and usage details more accessible, businesses can launch successful vanpool programs for their enterprise that make a real difference.
