The Vanpool Council of the Association for Commuter Transportation is North America’s most respected association for professionals who specialize in the provision of vanpool services. The Council addresses and shares information related to vanpools, including public-private partnerships, contracting issues, promotional issues, and others.
Thinking about starting a vanpool program? Want to know more about tax-free vanpool benefits? Do you know how a vanpool program would affect your bottom line? Are you aware of the public policy activities facing vanpools, such as NHTSA safety issues, capital cost of contracting, or transit issues? The answers to these questions and the assistance you need are at the core of this council’s existence. ACT’s Vanpool Council provides valuable information about changing laws, regulations, and business practices that have a direct bottom line impact on our business.
Vanpool Council members represent a diverse cross-section of private-sector business and public-sector organizations who develop or manage vanpool-related programs around the country. Working together to develop commute solutions with business and community benefits, Vanpool Council members have one thing in common — they’re experts in developing innovative transportation solutions.
The core group of participants represents vanpool providers, transit agencies, regional rideshare agencies, metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), transportation management associations (TMAs), and private employers.
