A vanpool is a service for 6-15 people to a workplace from an area not served by DART rail or bus. Riders are guaranteed a seat and share the cost of the van amongst the passengers.

Emergency Ride Home
This service is provided for vanpoolers who have personal or work-related emergencies. Riders are given a ride home via taxi or a rental car, available two times each quarter. The cost of the Emergency Ride Home co-pay is $10.

Sound too good to be true? It's not.
