How much does vanpooling cost?
The short answer: a lot less than driving by yourself every day. As an Every Commute Counts vanpool participant, you will be billed individually each month. Here’s how we calculate your monthly fare:
||Monthly mileage x $0.21
||Fuel expensed by driver using fleet card
||Maintenance fee + insurance fee + fuel expenses
|Monthly Fare Per Rider
||Total operating costs ÷ number of passengers
Even if you don’t vanpool every day of the week, the savings add up.
In addition, there may be tax benefits. If your employer participates in a commuter benefits program, these benefits may be available through tax-free employer-paid subsidies, pre-tax employee-paid payroll deductions, or a combination of both.
