CONNECTICUT'S INTEREST FREE VANPOOL PROGRAM. FIRST YEAR REPORT
The Interest Free Vanpool Program is an example of a joint public/private effort to further the development of cost-effective transportation through ridesharing. The program was developed and implemented as a cooperative effort of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Connecticut Department of Transportation (ConnDOT), and The Rideshare Company, an area-wide ridesharing agency in Hartford. The program was implemented in January 1983. Over the next 11 months, 27 vanpool were put into operation. Seventeen vans are being operated by individuals, while 10 vans are run by four Connecticut employers. The existing program carries approximately 286 persons per day, which removes about 189 automobiles from Connecticut roadways each workday. The program is highly cost-effective.
