Pace Suburban Bus Service, along with two other agencies, provide public transportation to people in Metropolitan Chicago area. One of Pace's programs is Vanpool Incentive Program (VIP). Groups of 5 to 15 people who live and work near each other can share a van provided by Pace. This paper will present four GIS applications designed to promote VIP and facilitate the work of Pace VIP staff. The four applications include a MapObjects one that Pace Vanpool representatives use when meeting with client companies in identify potential vanpool groups, an ArcIMS application which helps individuals who want to join an existing vanpool with their decision making, a MapObjects application that helps Pace staff convert vanpool route information from paper to electronic version and store it in Oracle, and an ArcObjects program to back up four vanpool related ArcSDE featureclasses automatically.
