Commuter Co-op VT
NEED A BETTER WAY TO GET TO WORK? USE OUR SUV OR VAN.
With Commuter Co-op VT, you use our ride. Instead of taking your personal vehicle, the State of Vermont provides you with a newer model SUV or van to take to work. All you have to do is pull together a commuter group and split a low monthly fee that covers all costs. You store the car at your house and share the daily driving with your group.
Commuter Co-op VT is the same great Vanpool program, just with a new name. Take advantage of incentives from Go! Vermont and upgrade your ride to work.
Your commute can be less stressful, more reliable and save you money.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS.
- Find a commuter group of co-workers or friends who share a similar commute and schedule as yours. In most cases, your employer can help you with this.
- Go! Vermont, in partnership with Commute with Enterprise, will provide a fully-equipped, newer model SUV or Van for you to use.
- Each rider pays a low monthly fee, which covers costs like gas, insurance, and repairs. You save money and commute for as low as $100 per month.
- You and your commuter group set your schedule and take turns driving. You can even keep the vehicle at your home.
- Contact Joe at Commute with Enterprise to get started. Call (201) 320-8300 or email Joseph.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Choose a fully-equipped vehicle that works best for you.
Choose from a selection of recent-model, low-mileage SUVs and Vans. From 15-passenger vans to 7-seat SUVs, there’s an option that works for your commuter group. Use our dependable vehicles and save money by reducing wear and tear on your own car.
