Vanpool Subsidy

Vanpool Subsidy logo


Relax For the Long Haul!  Ditch the drive-alone commute, in fact, ditch driving all together! Join a vanpool; we'll help foot the bill!

Vanpools traveling to Boston are looking for commuters interested in leaving their cars at home and saving money. Traveling via a vanpool can save commuters up to $5,000 in annual transportation costs and vanpooling qualifies for the pre-tax commuter benefit! A Better City TMA’s Vanpool Subsidy will reduce the cost of vanpooling by $220.00 over 6 months.  Couple your cost savings with getting valuable time back in your day to read, work or sleep and vanpooling really adds up.
