Vanpool Participant Benefits
Supplemental Daily-A Scratch-Off Parking Permits
Employees and Graduate Students participating in the vanpool program receive approximately 4 complimentary Scratch-off Parking Permits per month for times when driving a personal vehicle is necessary. Undergraduate student vanpool participants are not eligible for supplemental parking permits.
Supplemental Metro Bus Pass
Vanpool participants that choose not to receive Scratch-off Parking Permits can elect to receive an annual Staff/Faculty Metro bus pass (for the exclusive use by the vanpool participant; not transferable to family members) free of charge. Student vanpool participants are not eligible for a supplemental Metro bus pass.
Emergency Ride Home Program
Employees who vanpool are eligible to enroll in the Emergency Ride Home Program which provides a voucher for a free taxi ride; there is no charge for the ERH program. When the time comes and you need an emergency ride, you call the taxi company directly and order a cab ride by giving thorough directions to your campus pick-up location. When you need a new voucher simply email or call the TAPS Sales Office at 831/459-4543.
Take Your Bicycle on the Vanpool
All vanpool vehicles have bike racks that can carry up to 2 bikes so that participants can ride their bike to meet their vanpool.
