Vanpools are an excellent way to get to work. Avoid the costly repairs and fuel expenses of driving and make a friend or two along the way. Though it means less independence or the inability to stay late to get that one task done, vanpooling can help you and the community. Emissions are lowered, and fewer vehicles on our overcrowded highways mean faster commute times and reduced need to park a vehicle on campus.

As Massachusetts' statewide commuter services organization, MassRIDES provides assistance to commuters, companies, and Transportation Management Associations throughout the Commonwealth. Not only do vanpools exist that are solely for one company, but many provide service to many local employees of other businesses, schools, colleges, and universities. MassRIDES can match you up with a convenient group geared to your schedule and locations.
