EUGENE, Ore. -- There’s a new option for people that commute between Eugene, Salem, and Albany.

Lane Transit District started Valley VanPool. It offers a more sustainable, cost-effective way to commute.

The new route launched on Jan. 3rd. It travels from Salem to Eugene, accommodating the 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. workday schedule.

LTD expects to start two other routes that run from Eugene to Salem later this month. A fourth vanpool route that will run from Eugene to Albany is set to open in mid-January.

Commuters that drive alone between Eugene and Salem typically spend more than $500 per month for things like gas, tires, and maintenance. They also spend about 500 hours each year in their car.

LTD said the same commute only costs $170 per month while allowing the rider a chance to relax and cut back on air pollution.

Valley VanPool supports 47 vanpools that serve 400 commuters in the Willamette Valley.
