Many of us understand that when it comes to commuting, there is not much to enjoy. However, Cape Fox Corporation has now teamed up with Enterprise to launch a tailored vanpool program. This program ensures that as the company grows, so can the workforce by offering a benefit that makes Cape Fox stand out.
In recent studies, 70% of employees say the types of benefits and perks, such as this perk from Enterprise, influence whether they accept a job. There are many reasons this type of benefit would be advantageous for an employee, including:
- Save up to $6,000 a year on commuting expenses
- Enterprise will provide a recent-model SUV, crossover or van with optional amenities, like WiFi
- 24/7 roadside assistance
- Preventative maintenance
- Comprehensive physical and liability insurance included
- Month-to-month flexibility, meaning if the size of your group fluctuates, you can upgrade your ride or get a different model at any time.
- Fuel credit card
- EZ-pass (if needed)
- Riders will receive perks, such as preferred parking.
- Guaranteed Ride Home Program.
To use this benefit, riders will choose a central location and time for everyone to meet based on where they live and shift they work. (This means you will be riding to and from work with the same people, on the same schedule, every day.) Riders split the cost of rent, fuel, tolls, and parking, resulting in significant savings. As this is considered a form of mass transit, federal regulations for mass transit need to be followed. This means there will need to be a minimum of 4 people and a maximum of 15 people, and they will need to be in at least a seven-passenger vehicle.
To assist employees who wish to use this program, we are currently in the process of mapping zip codes to help connect employees who live near each other. Utilizing this benefit provides a smarter way to commute. Riding together, you are helping not just your company, but the environment as well. Let’s commute the smart way together.
