How Do I Become A Vanpool Driver? 

It’s easy. Just log into your account and select “Apply to Drive for your Commute” from the dashboard. Then complete and submit the driver application. We'll email once your application is approved.  

Keep in mind, you’ll need to meet the following criteria in order to be approved:

  • Possess a valid driver's license.Be 25 years of age or older*
  • Have no more than two moving violations and/or at-fault accidents in the previous three years and no more than four moving violations and/or at-fault accidents in the previous five years.
  • No major convictions in the past five years (i.e. driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, driving while impaired, failure to stop and report an accident, driving while license is suspended or revoked, possession of drugs or open containers of alcoholic beverage, reckless driving and/or participating in a speed contest, drag or highway race, or attempting to elude authorities).
  • Be licensed a minimum of five years in the United States. Meet and comply with any laws/criteria required by the state where the vanpool is operated (i.e. medical requirements, drug screen).


*In Michigan and New York, the minimum age is 18. Significant restrictions and surcharges apply to drivers who are less than 25 years old. Contact our local Commute location for more details.
