The state Department of Administration is responsible for developing a rideshare program for state employees. The Department may provide group transportation for a fee to cover expenses, but employees are not considered to be working while using it.
The Department of Administration administers the state vanpool program in the Madison area, with fees based on miles from work and number of passengers. State employee passengers are eligible for pretax payroll deductions for the cost of vanpools. Participants in the program may be eligible for flextime to accommodate the program. For information, go to http://www.doa.state
or call 800-884-8267.
A vanpool driver receives a discount on fees and limited personal use of the van. A state-employed vanpool driver must complete a driver safety program approved by the Department (WI Stat. Sec. 16.82).
