Vanpools are groups of 7 - 15 commuters who share the costs for a leased van. Vanpools at Penn are supported with free parking and start-up funding. Vanpools are operated in partnership with vRide. Eligible faculty and staff can sign up to make pre-tax contributions and to receive a subsidy to pay for vanpool costs. Visit wwww.upenn.edu/penncommuter if you would like more information.
