You have options for your daily commute. VIAWorks, the Transit Benefit Program from VIA Metropolitan Transit, offers convenient and affordable choices for employers and employees to enjoy the benefits of public transportation.
About vanpooling
It eliminates driving a personal vehicle and reduces gasoline and emissions.
It saves parking costs and traffic hassles.
It’s tax free for riders if done as a payroll deduction.*
Vanpool drivers may keep the van during evenings and weekends, in exchange for keeping a daily log, and managing the group’s finances and scheduled maintenance.
It offers an attractive benefit package on behalf of employers.
There is always a guaranteed ride home in case of emergency with VIAWorks and the Alamo Commutes Emergency Ride Home program.
* Tax benefits per IRS Code Section 132(f), as of 2017
Getting there together is a great way to start the day.
VIAWorks Vanpool vehicles may travel almost anywhere, as long as trips start or end within VIA’s bus service area. Vanpool makes it possible for groups of five to 15 persons to share a ride to work, while splitting the cost of van rental and fuel.
Employees of participating workplaces may receive up to $255 per month* for Vanpool expense reimbursements. VIA also provides a subsidy discount, insurance, 24-hour roadside assistance, and van maintenance. Click on the button below to find a Vanpool.
