Go NEWhere Vanpools is a vanpool program available across Nebraska. As part of this program, the Nebraska Department of Transportation provides a subsidy of up to $400 per month to groups who rent vans from Enterprise for carpooling to and from work. The program is funded through grants from the Federal Highway and Transit Administrations and aims to facilitate greater mobility, particularly in rural areas, while reducing the number of cars on roads throughout the state.
The $400 state subsidy covers about one-third of the monthly cost for the van’s lease, maintenance, and fuel. Vanpool group members are then invoiced monthly for the remaining costs. Two years after the program’s initial launch in 2017, 29 total vanpool groups were registered with the NDOT.
