Several vanpools to Hacienda are being planned from South Fremont, the Peninsula and Hayward/Union City.  Interested riders are sought as participants.

A Great Way to Share A Ride
Vanpools offer a terrific rideshare opportunity.  Comfortable and cost-saving travel accommodations take you and fellow commuters with similar origins and destinations conveniently from home to work and back again. In addition, a number of incentive programs are available from Alameda and neighboring counties to significantly reduce vanpool costs.

Here are some of the vanpools currently in formation.  Details on participating can be obtained using the contact information below.
