A vanpool is a group of people who commute together in a van. IU has partnered with Commute with Enterprise to offer the commute options to the IU community. Just like a carpool, a vanpool saves you money on driving expenses, wear and tear on your car, and driving responsibility. A vanpool usually includes between 5–15 commuters.
A late model van or SUV is leased by individual commuters; gas, maintenance, parking permit, and roadside assistance are all included. Lease holders are billed individually on a monthly basis. Participants can join at any time and leave at any time with 30-day notice. Just like with a carpool, the participants decide on work schedules, driving arrangements, and parking locations.
- A reserved parking space
- 12 one-day EM-P permits when they join the program and may purchase additional one-day permits at full price
- Enrollment in the Emergency Ride Home (ERH) program
