All CalVans vanpools base the cost per trip on the number of passengers and distance traveled. (The more riders, the less each rider pays.) The Agency bills the driver on a monthly basis to recover all costs. The driver divides the bill among the passengers, collects the payments from each rider, and forwards them to the Agency every month. The payments cover the Agency’s cost of maintaining and insuring the vans, as well as the cost of replacing them when they wear out.

A number of subsidies may be available to you depending on where you live and work, greatly reducing the cost of your monthly commute. Call 866-655-5444 to find out if you qualify for any of these cost-saving subsidies.
