    How about a vanpool? A vanpool allows you to save wear and tear on your own vehicle, and offers greater cost savings.

    If interested in starting a vanpool, contact Kathy Molin, Asheville’s TDM Coordinator: kmolin at ashevillenc dot gov, or call (828) 232-4564.

    And let’s not forget the ultimate vehicle pool: The bus.*
