Vanpool Program

A cost efficient way to get to campus.

A vanpool is like carpool except it holds more people, typically a group of 5 to 15 people who commute together in a van or SUV. There are two vendors that provide services in San Luis Obispo County. In addition, SLOCOG offers a vanpool subsidy that could cover 50% of your monthly commute costs. All Cal Poly vanpool groups enjoy other subsidies such as two days per month parking, as well as incentives and other rewards.

We recommend comparing your vanpool options to ensure the best fit for your commute.

Fall 2020 Update

Please note: per CDC guidelines as of July 2020 van riders will need to wear a face shield and mask if they are in close contact with others over 15 minutes.
