The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) and Enterprise Rideshare are partnering to launch the Pennsylvania Vanpool Incentive Program (PVIP), a new vanpool program that will be available throughout the state of Pennsylvania. Through this program, commuters can travel to/from work in subsidized vans that seat between seven to fifteen people. Enterprise provides 24-hour roadside assistance, liability insurance, and scheduled maintenance, and will offer PVIP participants free ride-matching services so that users can link up with commuters traveling similar routes. This partnership aims to provide a convenient, cost-effective transportation option that will reduce both carbon emissions and local traffic congestion.
