To help both existing employees and would-be employees who are facing transportation challenges, the Madison Region Economic Partnership (MadREP) is partnering with Commute with Enterprise to provide workplace vanpooling, according to a joint release. MadREP’s pilot will provide a $500 grant per van per month for up to three vanpools to help underwrite the cost to its partners. The remaining cost will be covered by the company, the riders, or a combination of the two as determined by each company.

Each vanpool program is customized to the specific needs of its five or more vanpool riders. Companies can choose a qualifying vanpool vehicle from Enterprise’s selection of makes and models that includes crossovers, SUVs, minivans, and large passenger vans. The Commute with Enterprise program provides 24-hour roadside assistance, liability insurance, and scheduled maintenance.
