Why choose goVanpool?

Vanpools are a group of 5-10 people who commute together to campus in a leased passenger van. Vanpools are becoming more popular for students, staff and faculty that live further from campus and are looking for a low-cost rideshare.

If you are willing to try vanpooling as your primary commute, we encourage you to connect with a coordinator in your area.
