The Good

  • Rides for Large Groups
  • Ride Options
  • Savings

Rides for Large Groups

The Commute with Enterprise platform offers a unique service. Commuting in company-owned van includes customized options with professional drivers that ensure the maintenance of the vehicles. The Commute with Enterprise service specializes in coordinating ride logistics for large groups/companies. Their online tools allow users to search for rides heading where a rider needs to go that matches their schedule. Users can request and join more than one van. With the custom tools available through Commute with Enterprise, customers can message vanpool members and find the right ride for their specific situation.

Commute with Enterprise

The platform offers several different options when looking for a better way to get to work. The options are:

  • Vanpool: commute with groups of more than 5 people who travel more than 15 miles each way. Commute with Enterprise helps with the creation of the group and also provides a custom-built van.
  • Carpool: commute with a group with less than 7 people. Commute with Enterprise's ride-matching application can help you create your carpool or find one.
  • Park and Ride: this an option for those that live a ways from a location. You can meet up with those in your pool at a convenient location and take just one car to your destination.

On average, an individual that uses Commute with Enterprise relatively frequently will save upwards of $1,800 each year. This cuts down on transportation costs and decreases carbon footprints one ride at a time. There are also tools in place to ensure that riders are aware of when a van is leaving and there are emergency ride home service options for when there is a disruption in a schedule.

The Bad

  • Service Availability
  • Unclear Website

Service Availability

The Commute with Enterprise platform does also have a number of drawbacks. For starters, it is not available everywhere. If you live outside the service area, Commute with Enterprise is simply not an option. There is also no guarantee that a van will head to the location a rider needs to get to. Additionally, there are only three car options available to customers. These options include:

  • 15 Passenger Vans
  • 10 Passenger Vans
  • 7 Passenger Vans

Unclear Website

Commute with Enterprise's website is incredibly difficult to use to discover information. They have an option to watch a safety video, but it actually does not exist. They also have a tab for FAQs, but the site reports that you cannot access it. FAQs on websites are extremely helpful in trying to figure out the ins and outs of a business. There is just not much information provided before you must enter into the long application process or attempt to create a pool, and by then you are already involved with the company.

The Bottom Line

Ride-sharing does help you free up some time by allowing you to complete some tasks while being driven to work.

Commute with Enterprise can help you reduce the cost of your business transportation. With people driving together there are fewer cars on the road which means fewer accidents.

However, the official website is hard to navigate and it is difficult to find information about the company.

They are rated highly and are accredited so maybe it is worth trying.

Commute has been a lifesaver. I live far away from my work. And they are the cheapest and fastest car service I’ve used.

Pros: newer vehicles with more options. Cons: Very poor accounting. It became a full time job for me to keep track of my group members payments. They never post the direct payments to the account in time. The standard response I get from them is 'wait till your payments are posted'. Very frustrating to deal with this kind of irresponsible process. Before we were with VRide and never had any issues. One more thing is they charge you random amounts for tolls and toll surcharge. I have my own toll tag and never had any toll issues from my side. I sent several emails but no resolution.

One of your customers was driving 70 mph in the Posey Tube Alameda, CA and exited the tube (Oakland, CA side) around 7:20am PST going at least 60 mph. If you want a lawsuit please continue to allow this person to drive your vans recklessly.

Submitted a refund request over a month in advance, after repeated status request received this "I am processing credit card refunds today. As I stated in our prior conversation, vacation/leave of absence reimbursement request processing time frame is 45 to 60 days. The reimbursements aren't reimbursed to the customer till they have gone on vacation. Thank you,Selenna" Billing takes your money for startup and payments immediately, but can't , i mean won't, take time to take care of customers, at least not without attitude.
