The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) and Enterprise have partnered to launch a vanpooling service in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, through a program named VanShare. As of June 15, riders residing in or traveling to Cuyahoga County can travel in groups of 6-15 people for shared commuting. Through this partnership, Enterprise helps to match riders with similar needs and provides drivers for vans offered by VA Medical Center that are selected to accommodate group size. RTA is subsidizing service by $0.30 per mile and hopes that VanShare will provide a cost-neutral transportation alternative for individuals who do not live on a fixed RTA route.
