Carpool and Vanpool
Carpooling is two or more people going together in one vehicle to their destination. Carpooling is easy because few people are involved; a carpool is flexible and can usually accommodate everyone’s needs. In a carpool, you save on gas and reduce wear and tear on a vehicle.
Do you drive more than 15 miles to work?
You are an ideal vanpool candidate. Vanpooling is a great choice for commuters who travel longer distances and vanpooling consolidates commuting costs into a single monthly payment. If you're interested in learning more (including a cost estimate for participating), contact email@example.com.
What is a vanpool? A vanpool is a formal arrangement among five or more people who commute more than 15 miles one-way to work. In exchange for a monthly fee shared by all vanpoolers, the program provides a vehicle, insurance, maintenance and fuel.
How much does it cost? Vanpool pricing varies depending on the length of trip and number of people sharing the van. Most vanpools receive a subsidy from Way to Go that covers up to 60 percent of monthly commuting costs. In general, the monthly cost is significantly less than the monthly cost of fuel for driving your own car to work. Joining a vanpool reduces wear and tear on your personal vehicle, the amount of money you spend on gas, and can lower your insurance premiums.
What if I need to leave early or work late? All vanpoolers are covered by the Guaranteed Ride Home program, which provides a free taxi ride in the case of a personal or family emergency or unexpected overtime.

There are many bike routes to complete your trip to the Colorado Technology Center, including the Coal Creek Trail between Lafayette, Louisville, and Superior.

Additionally, all streets within the Colorado Technology Center easily accommodate bicycles.
Bike 36 is an online, interactive bicycle map for the U.S. 36 corridor to help plan your route. Print copies are also available; please contact email@example.com to receive a free copy. Visit 36commutingsolutions.org for this and other bicycle resources.
Consider pairing your bicycle trip with transit! RTD’s Bike-n-Ride program makes it easy to combine transit and bicycling. All buses except the Denver 16th Street Mall shuttles are equipped with bike racks.
Telework brings work to employees through technology rather than bringing employees to work by traveling. Teleworkers are employees who work at home one or more days each week instead of commuting to the office. Employers that offer telework programs benefit from increased employee productivity, reduced overhead costs, and decreased demands for office and parking space.
The Denver Regional Council of Government provides free telework consultations to metro Denver businesses. For more information, please contact Catherine at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Get Paid for Your Commute on US 36
