TBARTA Vanpool is a program offered by Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority (TBARTA), the regional commuter assistance program agency for West Central Florida covering Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Hernando and Citrus counties.

VPSI, Inc. is the administrator of TBARTA Vanpool and provides vanpool vehicles, auto liability, comprehensive & collision coverage, all scheduled preventative maintenance and repairs, and customer support for the vanpool groups.
Vanpooling is a great, cost effective choice for your daily commute. You can enjoy the convenience of sharing a ride to work with others in a friendly environment.
You'll arrive at work safe, on time, and relaxed. But the benefits don't stop there. By vanpooling you can use your commute time productively to catch up on your work, your sleep, or the latest best seller.
Frequently Asked Questions About Vanpooling

Incentives and Benefits of Vanpooling


The Federal government has recently made changes to the Internal Revenue Code, which can benefit employers and employees who participate in vanpooling. These changes, commonly referred to as Commuter Choice Initiative, allow employers to offer a tax-free fringe benefit to employees using qualified commute options. Vanpooling qualifies for this benefit.


Vanpooling offers many benefits including:

• FREE enrollment in the Emergency Ride Home Program (ERH).
• Save money on your monthly commuting costs.
• Reduce wear and tear on your personal vehicle.
• Ease the daily grind and stress of traffic congestion.
• Turn commuting time into productive time to read, catch up on work, or sleep.
• Make new friends with fellow vanpool riders.
• Contribute to improving our environment.
