Most vans designate two to four drivers to share driving duties. All drivers must submit an application and are subject to approval prior to driving. All drivers must be 25 years or older (18 years or older in Michigan or New York) and meet minimum driver requirements. As part of the Enterprise Rideshare driver application process, each driver's MVR (Motor Vehicle Record) is checked annually to ensure that it is in compliance with our policies.

How long of a commitment do I have to make to a vanpool?
Enterprise vanpools are set up on a simple month-to-month basis. If you decide at any point that you would like to discontinue the vanpool, simply turn in a 30-day notice and return the van at the end of that time period.
How do I get started?
Simply call 800 VAN-4-WORK and speak to a customer service representative. The process typically takes less than a week.
