Get There Better Together - Corvallis to Eugene Vanpool Options
Media Contact: Tracy Ellis
Drive alone commuters between Corvallis and Eugene typically spend around $350 per month just for gas, tires, and maintenance, while also spending about 375 hours each year behind the wheel of a car.
The same commute utilizing a Corvallis to Eugene commuter vanpool currently costs much less (around $135 - $150 per month, depending on ridership) and allows the rider to sit back and relax, while saving money on gas, wear and tear as well as reducing traffic and air pollution.
Valley VanPool currently supports 50 vanpools that serve more than 400 commuters throughout the Willamette Valley. Commuters find that vanpooling allows them to relax, read, work, or even sleep instead of fighting traffic. Other benefits include saving on gas money, maintenance, insurance, and wear and tear on personal vehicles, as well as reducing harmful pollutants that threaten our environment.
