Program summary

Program Summary

  • Vanpools in both the Northern Virginia and the George Washington regions can be made eligible to report their data and generate more §5307 funds for both regions.


Program summary1

Program Summary

  • Given the number of vanpools operating in the George Washington Region (approximately 350 travelling from here to Northern Va. / D.C.), the potential §5307 earnings is substantial.

  • Just 200 vanpools could yield about $3 million annually in gross §5307 earnings in the third year (prior to paying vanpool subsidies)


A multi regional effort

A Multi-Regional Effort

  • An earlier multi-regional Vanpool Incentive NTD Program was close to reality in 2003 but was not implemented.

  • NVTC has researched the possibility of implementing a Vanpool Incentive NTD Program for both regions which has sparked renewed interest for this type of program.


A multi regional effort next steps

A Multi-Regional Effort – Next Steps

  • NVTC and FAMPO could provide $200,000 seed money through CMAQ for the funding of a consulting team to assist both regions in designing an effective program.

  • A draft scope of work is being developed by FAMPO, NVTC, PRTC, GWRideConnect and others for the consulting team to perform tasks resulting in recommendations on the best ways to proceed with a Vanpool Incentive NTD program.
