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.
Participants are automatically enrolled in the Hoosier Commuter Club and its benefitting programs. For more information about Commute with Enterprise, visit their website.
