Who Are We?

Does your staff need transportation assistance?

Commuter Options vanpools are available to help Philadelphia area residents get to good paying jobs in the suburbs that are not accessible by public transportation. We pay for the vans, the gas, and PA tolls for workers to get to suburban jobs. We partner with Enterprise to provide new vans, 24 hour roadside assistance, and insurance, all will no liability to the employer.

This is a commuter-run service. One person in the vanpool serves as the driver, taking responsibility for the van. The driver picks up riders and brings them to work. The driver also works on the same shift as the rest of the staff. Drivers and riders pay $30 per week to use the service, which is much less than similar SEPTA fare.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF COMMUTER OPTIONS?

  • Provides access to suburban jobs unreachable or difficult to reach by public transportation.
  • Employers can reduce high turn-over due to long and difficult commutes. Increases employee productivity and satisfaction.
  • Vanpooling means fewer cars on the road, reducing congestion and pollution.

Commuter Options is funded by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and the City of Philadelphia.
