Vanpooling is a great way to save time and money on your commute to work, and there’s no better place in the country to vanpool than Brevard County! For more than 25 years, Space Coast Area Transit and vRide have offered a wide variety of vans and programs to fit the needs of our community.
The commuter vanpool program is for working professionals who have long commutes on a daily basis and could benefit from sharing those expenses. A group of 7-15 people lease a van from vRide at a fixed monthly cost that covers the lease payment, maintenance, roadside assistance, and insurance. Employers may provide employees with tax free vanpool and transit benefits. There are currently over 45 commuter vans on the road, with the majority traveling to the Viera VA Clinic and Kennedy Space Center. For convenience, many passengers meet at centralized Park & Ride Lots.
Space Coast Area Transit and vRide developed the Agency Vanpool Program to benefit the disadvantaged residents of Brevard and strengthen the community at large. Before vRide, the cost of insuring and operating a van was not feasible for many human services agencies, due to their limited budgets. Transporting the mobility disadvantaged is now simple and affordable for organizations such as Brevard Alzheimer’s, Bridges, and the Space Coast Center for Independent Living, who lease vans through vRide for only $695.00 per month—which includes insurance and maintenance. Currently, 19 agencies have been provided 46 vans through this cost-saving program.
