CU-Boulder has launched CU Commute, a social platform that networks users by alternative methods of transportation. CU Commute offers incentives, prizes, and a trip tracker for folks who use alternative methods of transportation. It's simple. Have a car? Split the costs by driving fellow CU-Boulder community members. Don't have a car? Find a ride where you need to go. You save money, protect the environment, and gain access to priority carpool parking and many other benefits when you share your ride. For more information on CU Commute.
Vanpooling is a great option if your commute is 12 miles or more, your work day starts or ends when RTD’s buses aren’t running or you just don’t live near bus service. Understanding the benefits of vanpooling CU-Boulder and the City of Boulder have combined forces to provide subsidies to make it more affordable and accessible for everyone commuting to CU Boulder.
What is a Vanpool?
A group of 5-8 people share a van provided by a commuter organization. Members generally share similar commutes and schedules. Driving responsibilities and meeting locations can be shared and/or negotiated amongst eligible riders.
What’s in it for you?
If you currently drive, you’ll save hundreds of dollars a year. Current CU-Boulder vanpoolers in the vRide program are saving an average of $375 a year in gas costs alone.
