SBCTA has officially launched San Bernardino (SB) Loop Vanpool Program. The Loop Vanpool Program is designed to offer commuters a better, more relaxing alternative to driving alone. In addition, the Loop provides a subsidy of up to $400 each month towards the cost of a vanpool lease for vanpools commuting into the Loop’s service area: the San Bernardino Valley, San Bernardino Mountains, Morongo Valley or Colorado River Basin.
A vanpool consists of five to fifteen people sharing a ride to work or vocational/post-secondary school. In order to qualify for the subsidy, the vanpool destination must be within the service area, need to lease a five to fifteen passenger vanpool vehicle through an SBCTA approved leasing vendor, California Vanpool Authority (CalVans) or Commute with Enterprise, and must travel a minimum of 30 miles roundtrip for 12 or more days a month.
By driving your car less, you’ll be saving on gas and maintenance – not to mention wear and tear on you and your car. You can also take advantage of the extra time to relax, read a book, catch up on work, or simply enjoy the company of fellow passengers.
