Carpooling & Vanpooling


Carpooling

A carpool is 2 - 8 people sharing a ride to a common destination. It is often called ridesharing and it reduces commute costs for employees. The definition of a carpool in the City of Roseville’s Transportation Systems Management (TSM) Ordinance includes employees who work for different employers as well as non-employed persons, excluding children, as long as they are in the vehicle for the majority of the total trip distance.





  • Carpooling is efficient and cost-effective for any commute over 10 miles.
  • Carpooling reduces the number of vehicles on the road and helps reduce air pollution.
  • Whether one person drives and the other(s) contributes to the expenses, or the carpoolers alternate driving responsibilities, carpooling can be an economical and convenient way to commute to and from work.
  • Carpoolers save money and reduce stress by sharing the time and cost of the commute.
  • Carpoolers are eligible to park in preferred parking spaces, which are typically closer to the employee entrance than other employee parking.
  • Carpool to work as often as possible – even one or two days a week can make a difference.

Locate Park & Ride lots throughout Roseville. These lots provide a place for drivers to park and rendezvous with other people in your carpool or vanpool. Most are near major interchanges and many have bike lockers.  

To find others who live and work near you and have similar work schedules, call 511 or visit www.sacregioncommuterclub.org and use the RideMatch tool.






Vanpooling
 Vanpool

A vanpool is a motor vehicle suited for occupancy by more than seven but less than sixteen persons, including the driver, traveling to and from work. Vanpool members share expenses.





  • There are different types of vanpool arrangements:
    • Third-party vanpooling allows groups of employees to lease a van on a month-to-month basis from a vanpool leasing company.
    • Owner-operated vanpools are operated for employees by one of the vanpool members who owns the van.
    • Some employee vanpools use vehicles owned by their employer.
  • Vanpooling is effective for commuters who travel at least 15 miles each way and live near each other or travel along the same route to work; and have similar daily work schedules.
  • Vanpooling is an economical and comfortable alternative to driving alone, and vanpoolers can save hundreds of dollars each year.
  • Vanpoolers are eligible to park in preferred parking spaces, which are typically closer to the employee entrance than other employee parking.
