Vanpool Subsidies Increase in the Inland Empire

August 7, 2023

Vanpoolers in the Inland Empire can now earn subsidies of up to $700 every month toward vanpool lease costs.

The monthly subsidy for vanpools that travel into Riverside and San Bernardino counties is now $600 (up from $400). Zero-emission vehicles may qualify for up to a $700 monthly subsidy (previously $500).

In addition, commuters new to ridesharing who start vanpooling may qualify for an incentive of $5/Day for the first three months.

SBCTA is responsible for efforts throughout San Bernardino County to encourage commuters to rideshare by taking the bus, train, carpooling/vanpooling, telecommuting, biking or walking to work. Ridesharing assists the region with reducing traffic and single occupancy vehicle trips as well as improving air quality.
