MichiVan, sponsored by the Michigan Department of Transportation and operated by Enterprise Rideshare, supplies fully insured passenger vans to commuter groups. Under this program:

  • 5 to 15 commuters share a van along an established route
  • Riders pay a monthly fee as low as $55 per month
    (Based on their daily round trip/monthly commute mileage and the size of van)
  • The MichiVan operator, currently Enterprise Rideshare, provides the vehicle and pays for the maintenance/repairs, insurance, titling, and licensing
  • A vanpool group usually meets at a centralized location
    (Ex: Shopping mall, grocery store or carpool lot)
  • A free ride home for unexpected emergencies​, program rules and guidelines apply


The vanpool program is open to individuals of the public. The MichiVan operator also helps employers develop vanpools and ridesharing programs.
