The Measure C Vanpool Program offers a variety of subsidies and reimbursements to help ensure that commuters can reach their destinations safely by using a cost-effective alternative to a single-occupant vehicle. This program will help to improve our air quality and alleviate traffic congestion in Fresno County.

 

The Commuter Vanpool program is funded by the Measure “C” Extension, which is a 20-year, half-cent transportation sales tax, passed by Fresno County voters in November 2006. The program is designed to encourage, facilitate and help fund new vanpools and offer financial assistance to existing vanpools to ensure their viability.

 

To qualify for subsidies or reimbursements, new and existing vanpools must originate in Fresno County and have at least six riders and one driver. Vanpools also should operate at least five days per week, unless participants are working full-time on an alternate work schedule that requires fewer commuter days

 

Complete information regarding the subsidies and reimbursements, eligibility requirements, and a list of vanpool providers is available on Fresno COG’s Ridesharing website www.valleyrides.com.
