The City’s Mountain Metro Rides group is accepting applications now for its van pool program. If you live in Colorado Springs and commute to Denver, Pueblo or other outlying areas, or you live in outlying areas and commute to Colorado Springs, van pools can be a smart choice. Van-poolers share the ride and pay a low monthly fare for a minivan that seats six passengers or a full-size van that seats 10 passengers. The van, insurance, fuel, maintenance and an emergency ride home are all included. Plus, some commuters may be eligible for commuter benefits that further reduce their costs or even allow them to commute for FREE. Sign up at www.mmtransit.com by filling out our online application or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
