Vanpools provide the flexibility and convenience of car travel but with the opportunity to significantly cut fuel costs and avoid wear and tear on your personal vehicle.
A vanpool is a group of 5 to 15 commuters who live and work in a common area, have compatible work days/hours and ride in a van that they lease as a group from a vanpool provider. Vanpools traveling to a work destination in Somerset County may qualify for an empty seat subsidy from RideWise to cover the cost if passengers leave the vanpool.
NJ TRANSIT’s Vanpool Sponsorship Program will provide $175 per month to newly forming or existing vanpool groups who meet eligibility requirements. The sponsorship amount is set by NJ TRANSIT and the vanpool group and individual riders must reapply annually. RideWise will assist vanpool groups and individuals with qualifying and completing the application.
