STAR Vanpool – Another Easy Option for Your Commute!

STAR VanpoolLooking for a way to reduce the stresses of your commute and save on gas? STAR vanpooling, operated by METRO, might be the perfect solution for you! STAR offers scheduled routes to the Energy Corridor regardless of where you may live.

Vanpooling helps participants save money, reduce stress and relax during their daily commute. Routes are composed of riders who live and work in the same area, as well as maintain similar work schedules. If you don’t know anyone in your area, STAR offers a Ride Matching program to help those interested form vanpooling groups.

“STAR offers employees in the Energy Corridor, and throughout the Houston metropolitan area, a safe, affordable and reliable alternative to driving alone to work,” says David McMaster, director, commuter services for METRO.  “Contact us today to find out if this convenient service is right for you.”

Being part of a vanpool benefits participants and the community by:

  • Saving money by lowering fuel and maintenance expenses
  • Saving time by using HOV and managed lanes
  • Reducing stress by letting someone else drive
  • Helping the environment by reducing harmful emissions
