Sustainability

A vRide vanpool is your green machine. Each van can take up to 14 cars off the road—meaning less traffic and less pollution. For companies, this is a great opportunity to bolster your corporate responsibility and sustainability plans.

Gain Time

Instead of fighting traffic, sit back, relax, and spend your commute appreciating your best career decision yet. vRide vans are eligible for HOV lanes to further reduce your commute time.

Federal Tax Incentives and Grant Assistance

Employee vanpools are often eligible for federal funding and subsidies. Vanpooling, by defnition saves money. Tax breaks, deductions, and incentive programs are monthly and yearly financial bonuses that rapidly add up.

Aerospace
I used to make the commute to work with my husband, but when he became disabled in August 2004, I joined MichiVan as a “Rider Only.” I was reluctant to give up the freedom of having my car, because I lived about 45 minutes from my job. I was worried about what would happen if I was needed at home. Having the guaranteed ride home program was a plus, as well as not having to make that long commute by myself. Turns out, I’m glad my husband and brother-in-law talked me in to it. In 2006, I became the primary driver for the Adrian 2 to Ann Arbor MichiVan pool. Over the years, some of the riders have changed, but all have been wonderful people. Besides saving gas money, wear and tear on your vehicle, and maybe getting a little nap, the experience has turned out to be rewarding in a way that many others may not have even imagined a commuter pool could be. You see, in October 2006, my husband passed away. My longtime road-friends told me not to worry. They immediately took over and made arrangements for keeping the Van Pool running smoothly while I took a few weeks off. Two and half years later, I’m still driving the commuter van. I’ve found that the daily commuting time I spend is now a chance to laugh, share ideas, discuss news, and just be with warm caring people. I still just cannot thank the members of Adrian 2 MichiVan enough for their support, kindnesses and love. You are all were so appreciated then, and still so appreciated now!
