The coolest commute hack: Joining a vanpool. The alternative rideshare option saves time + money by allowing you to commute with a group of three or more people (think: neighbors, friends, coworkers, or an existing group). The best part: The affordable monthly fee includes a van, gas, tolls, insurance, car maintenance, 24-hour roadside assistance, and more.
Participating in a vanpool makes the stress of commuting, well, less stressful — here’s how:
Shorter commutes: Multiple passengers in one vehicle means access to HOV + toll lanes. Read: Less time in traffic + more time in your day.
You don’t have to drive every day: Whether ridesharing three days per week or seven, Vanpool allows the driving responsibilities to be shared in the group. Groups can have designated drivers for different days of the week.
Community building: Vanpooling gives you a chance to connect with others and build relationships that frequently extend beyond the van.

Editor’s pick: This last weekend was my first time at Taste Washington — and of course — it was so much fun. What was really neat, though, was getting to hear firsthand how some of these wines were made. You learn a lot about how different conditions and barrel types can directly influence flavor, so it’s a great opportunity to learn a little bit about your own palette.
