For employees of the Federal Government (in our service area, this most commonly includes Fort Knox, the Veterans’ Administration, the Army Corps of Engineers, and the Department of Defense, but it can include others), your commute may be paid for in full or in part by your employer!
Federal employees wishing to join a vanpool should consult with their Human Resources contact to complete the process for getting the Mass Transit Benefit, which is what you would use to pay up to $300 of your monthly vanpool fare. This benefit may also be used to purchase transit tickets and passes if you also ride the bus.
Contact us for more information about how we can help you find a vanpool and/or start a new vanpool.
And don’t be discouraged if you don’t work for a Federal Agency and don’t yet have access to this benefit. Private employers can offer it to their employees, too. For more information, see our Employers page!
