A ride in a commuter highway vehicle between the employee’s home and work place
Example: Vanpool – any vehicle that seats at least 6 adults (not including the driver). In addition, you must reasonably expect that at least 80% of the vehicle mileage will be for transporting employees between their homes and work place with employees occupying at least one-half the vehicle’s seats (not including the driver’s).
Offering EZ Rider bus passes and pre-tax payroll deductions for transit passes, vanpool fees or bicycle commuting expenses qualify as “Gold” level partner programs for Club Ride.
