Currently, UC Davis Medical Center's vanpool program is administered through Enterprise Vans. A vanpool may consist of 6 or more employees who work at least 50% of the time. Vanpoolers must commute a minimum of 15 miles one way to the Medical Center at least three times a week. They must reside in the same or neighboring zip codes. Vanpools can either be granted reserved parking or park in any "B" designated space.
There are currently 5 vanpools in operation covering the areas of Roseville, Rocklin, Stockton, Lodi, and Woodland. The cost of joining any vanpool is determined by the number of miles traveled divided by the number of passengers. Parking Services offer a monthly subsidy to each passenger to offset the monthly leased cost. You can choose to join a vanpool on a regular basis or try it out for a few days at the daily rate established by the vanpool.
During each fiscal year, each member of the vanpool receives a Temporary Ride Share Parking Permit which allows for twenty-four (24) courtesy parking events for each member. Once the courtesy parking has been fully utilized, twenty-four (24) Clean Air Commuter Permits are available for purchase at a 50% discount.
Only UC Davis Medical Center employees are eligible for the courtesy parking permits or discounted parking benefits. Vanpoolers registered in the Green Commuter program will receive:
- Complimentary Parking Permits – Each vanpool member receives one Temporary Rideshare Parking Permit per fiscal year, (valid for 24 days of parking in any "B" parking space at UC Davis Medical Center). This permit is to be used when vanpooler has to drive alone to work.
- Discounted Parking Permit – Vanpool members may purchase the Clean Air Commuter pass which is a 50% savings on the daily parking rate.
- Guaranteed Ride Home – Complimentary transportation service to get you home in the event of an emergency.
- Win Great Prizes – Vanpoolers are eligible to win great prizes both regionally and locally as they register their miles saved through the Sacramento TMA (Transportation Management Association) website. To register regional miles, visit www.sacregioncommuterclub.com to enter your miles into a drawing for prizes.
