To make it easier for you to provide feedback, it might help to know that the Pace Vanpool Program consists of five different types of service:

  • Traditional – An affordable shared commute for traveling to and from work in groups of 4 or more. Pace provides a van and services include fuel, maintenance, insurance, tolls, roadside assistance and more. Drivers are volunteer participants within the group.
  • Feeder – Pace vans are available for the first or last mile connection to and from bus, train, and park-n-ride locations on the way to work. Employees set up service with Pace and volunteer to drive.
  • Employer Shuttle – Pace Bus supplies vans to employers, who in turn provide the drivers and pay a monthly fee to Pace, to offer employees first and last mile connections between public transportation and worksites.
  • Not-For-Profit Shuttle – The employer shuttle offered at a Not-For-Profit rate. Not-For-Profit organizations can arrange with Pace to access vans for transporting employees and/or clients between the workplace and public transportation stops. Drivers are hired by the not-for-profit organization.
