vanpool participants

The SANDAG Vanpool Program, administered by iCommute, has nearly 700 vehicles on the road, helping more than 5,000 San Diego region commuters share the ride to work. From filling seats to subsidizing lease costs, iCommute is here to help vanpools stay on the road. 

Recruit new riders and fill seats. Looking for new riders? Our customizable fliers can help you fill empty seats in your van. Simply add your vanpool details, then post the flier in your break room or employee mailboxes. We’d be happy to help you customize a flier – just contact us!

Let us help you find new riders! Simply submit an open seats form and your vanpool's information will be included in our available vanpool seats list.

Send a friend or coworker more information. Know someone interested in joining a vanpool? Encourage them to sign up for the vanpool interest list. An iCommute staff member will notify them if a vanpool matching their preferences is available, or if there is interest in starting a new vanpool in their area. They can also view the list of currently available vanpool seats

Vanpool participants who refer a friend using referral code "SANDAG" will receive a $25 gas card. Your referred friend also gets a $25 gas card!

You’ll never be stranded. If you vanpool, you have a safety net with the Guaranteed Ride Home programRegistered participants can get a free ride home in an Uber, taxi, or rental car up to three times per year in the event of:

  • Personal or family illness or emergency
  • Unscheduled overtime
  • Being stranded at work due to carpool or vanpool driver leaving for an emergency

To register for the Guaranteed Ride Home program, fill out this registration form and your vouchers will be emailed to you.

Just park and go. With multiple locations throughout the San Diego region, Park & Ride lots are a free and convenient place to meet your vanpool riders. View the Park & Ride map to find a convenient lot for your vanpool.
