Vanpool

Vanpool is a good option for people who want to take transit but do not leave near a bus or train line. RTA’s newVanShare program subsidizes the cost of participating commuters who begin or end their trips in Cuyahoga County. A vanpool is like a carpool but with at least 5 people sharing a van on a contract basis. Vanpool networks extend the transit network beyond its current bounds, while offering similar costs and benefits.
