Save Money On Your Commute
Vanpooling cuts commuting costs by 50-75 percent
Say goodbye to added fuel, maintenance and insurance costs associated with your daily commute. Based on the average commute of 50 round-trip miles per day, driving alone will cost nearly $800* per month and almost $10,000* per year.
Fuel costs alone in your own car are usually more expensive than the total monthly cost of a riding in a vanpool. With gas prices nearing $4.00 per gallon, this can cost you $200/month*.
Taking your car to and from work every day increases the frequency of scheduled maintenance (e.g. brakes, oil change, etc.) as well as the increased likelihood of unscheduled repairs.
Almost all major auto insurance companies offer significant discounts (10% to 30%) to drivers who designate their vehicle as "recreational only," which means you use it for everything but driving to work. Plus, some major insurance companies now offer Pay as You Drive insurance, further incentivizing low-mileage drivers.
Depreciation is typically the most dramatic commuting cost and the most difficult to recognize. Commuting adds the most significant miles during your car’s life and lowers your car's resale value by thousands of dollars when you decide to sell.
