When your employees start a new vanpool that originates and terminates within Riverside or San Bernardino counties, we underwrite the cost at $1,800 over 9 months. For companies with vanpools that terminate in Los Angeles, Orange, or San Diego County, the benefit is $400 per month. Call 1‑866‑RIDESHARE (866-743-3742) to get started.
Our Vanpool Incentive Program underwrites the cost of new vanpools originating and terminating in Riverside or San Bernardino counties. At least 65% of the riders in each vanpool must be Inland Empire residents.
Each new start-up vanpool will receive $1,800 over the course of a 9-month period: $300 per month for the first three months, $200 per month for the second three months, $100 per month for the final three months.
If fewer than 100% of the vanpool riders are Inland Empire residents, the incentive amount will be prorated accordingly, i.e. if eight of ten riders in a vanpool are Inland Empire residents, the vanpool will receive 80% of the total incentive.
The incentive is paid directly to the vanpool leasing company: Enterprise Rideshare or VPSI Commuter Vanpools. All arrangements, from vanpool formation to final lease agreements, are made directly with the vanpool vendors.
The incentive will start when the vanpool group takes possession of the van and begins operation of the new vanpool.

Employees may not receive any other publicly funded financial incentives while they are participating in this program.
