I’m trying to catch up on some old news postings:

Commuters can save money getting to work by using the two new van pools just added to Central Ohio roadways.
RideSolutions, a program of the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission, added the van pools to 42 routes it runs in Central Ohio. The van pools will run between Columbus and Marysville, west of Dublin, and Johnstown, northeast of New Albany.
The Marysville to Columbus 15-passenger route is expected to reduce the total number of miles driven by passengers by more than 327,000 annually. The van pool also could save over $32,000 in fuel costs and eliminate over a half ton of carbon dioxide emissions annually, MORPC said.
The Johnstown to Columbus van pool, which will cut a total of 79,000 miles from commuters’ travel time annually, will be able to transport seven passengers and is expected to save over 3,000 gallons of fuels and over $7,000 in fuel costs per year.
