Vanpooling continues to fill an important niche to providing public transportation as it continues to be the fastest, most cost-effective and safest form of public transportation options available today.. According to the National Transit Database in 2017, vanpooling has the lowest cost per passenger mile of all public transportation modes. Over 13,000 vanpools are operated daily and experienced more than tripling of the number of unlinked passenger trips since 2002 to 2012. Nationally, this growth has stabilized over the past several years. This webinar will feature three experienced vanpool professionals who will provide tips for retaining as well as recruiting drivers and riders to growing their vanpool. They will discuss how they see vanpooling reinventing itself going forward as new travel options serve the first/last mile of the trip and technology advances impact travel choices.
