Vanpool Program at Emory

Vanpooling is a great option if you have a long commute, but no access to public transit. Here's what a typical vanpool looks like:
  • A group of 7–15 commuters rent a van through Douglas County.
  • Douglas County provides insurance and maintenance.
  • All costs are shared by the group.
  • Passengers take turns driving.
  • Everyone agrees to meet in the mornings and afternoons at a central location at an agreed-upon departure time.
  • Anyone registered to drive the van can use it during the day to run errands or go to lunch.
  • The van has a subsidized reserved parking space on campus.
  • Emory covers up to $100 of the vanpool cost per employee each month.
  • Vanpool participants get a parking pass to park their own vehicles on campus up to 20 times each year.
