Vanpools now enjoy a 100 percent subsidy and free vanpool parking

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

As of 2016, Stanford vanpools with five or more Commute Club-members can ride for free with a 100% vanpool subsidy. Vanpools receive free premium parking on campus, and carpooling members can receive up to $300 a year in Clean Air Cash. Stanford vanpools are part of a comprehensive campus rideshare program, offering carpools, ride matching services, and incentives for members. Through efforts like this and Stanford’s Commute Club, which includes over 10,000 members, Stanford has reduced the number of employees driving alone to campus by 33% since 2002, the year that Stanford put into place one of the most comprehensive transportation demand management programs in the country.
