Vanpool

The purpose of the CSULB vanpool program is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, comply with our air quality mandate, and support sustainable transportation choices. CSULB vanpools consist of 4 to 10 students, faculty and staff who, as a group, rent a van through Enterprise Rideshare to commute to campus. CSULB vanpool members save money on gas, vehicle maintenance, insurance, the expense of a parking permit. Vanpools are eligible to receive the following benefits:

  •   A $500/month van rental subsidy
  •   A $100/month fuel subsidy
  •   A virtual employee parking permit for the van
  •   Two subsidized emergency rides home per fiscal year

In addition, vanpooling allows riders to use time-saving carpool lanes and has health benefits including reduced stress. Vanpool passengers often use the time to relax, sleep, read, text, or catch up on emails. Part-time ridership options are also available.

Each Enterprise Rideshare van features luxury upholstery, sound system, cruise control, power locks and windows, and front and rear A/C, with additional upgrades upon request.

Join an existing vanpool or start a new one! Please call 562.985.7433 or email ride@csulb.edu to learn more. We will help you start the process or connect you with an existing vanpool if one already exists in your area.
