Oregon Agencies Launch New Long-Distance Vanpools

Valley VanPool, a ­collaboration of Oregon public transit agencies including Cherriots in Salem and Lane Transit District in Eugene, this month launched four new long-distance commuting options among those cities and Albany, OR.

The organization explained that solo drivers may spend more than $500 per month traveling between Salem and Eugene, compared with $170 per month in a vanpool that also allows the commuter to relax during the trip.

Valley VanPool currently supports 47 vanpools that serve more than 400 commuters in the Willamette Valley.
