Rail and bus aren’t the only way to cut commuting costs and take single-occupancy vehicles off the road. DART’s Vanpool program helps many commuters throughout North Texas get to work each day.
The vehicles can go anywhere as long as either the origin or destination are within Dallas, Denton or Collin counties and the trip does not originate in Tarrant County, which is served by The T in Fort Worth.
Six to 15 people can share the ride to work and members split the vanpool fee and gas. DART supplies the van, insurance and maintenance. The agency will introduce a significantly lower rate beginning in January 2015.
