MichiVan vanpools

If you are keeping a car solely to get to work, MichiVan may be just what you need to cut a car out of your life. They set up vanpools for people who live and work in the similar areas. They say if your commute is 15 miles or more and you have a fairly regular work schedule, Michivan will work for you. If you aren't sure, they also provide a commute calculator to show your potential savings over driving to work alone. The average cost is about $75/month which includes all gas, maintenance, parking, insurance, etc.

The stumbling point is finding a vanpool group to join. MichVan does that for you, but you may have to go on a waiting list until there are enough people with a similar commute to form a group.
