FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

When can I submit last month's data?

In order to meet Transit Agency and FTA requirements, the data for last month must be submitted between the 1st and before a cut-off date. This is usually somewhere between the 6th and 10th of the current month.

What are Fuel Expenses?

The total cost of fuel purchased for your vanpool's van during the specified month.

What are Fuel Gallons?

The total amount of fuel for your vanpool's van during the specified month. It expects up to 3 figures after the decimal point.

What are Other Expenses?

These are non-fuel expense related to the van such as tolls and wiper blades.

What Is An Odometer?

Also known as a milometer, this is the total number of miles the vehicle has travelled since new. It is usually visible on the dashboard on or near the speedometer. To prevent bad input, each monthly reading must be within 8,000 miles of last month's reading.

I've submitted the data. Can I edit it again later?

Yes you can, assuming the cut-off date hasn't passed. If the cut-off data has passed and you still wish to change your vanpool's data then please contact your local vRide representative.

Where did the NTD calendar page go?

The grid will only be displayed for the data capture period (see the first answer, above) and is not required at other times.

I've been using the mobile app for Trip Recording. Can I still use it?

Yes, of course. But we reckon you'll find the new vRide.com method of recording easier to use, since it requires less effort and doesn't require a good cell phone signal.

How accurate does the trip data need to be?

If your vanpool is setup correctly, then the prefilled data should be accurate enough. However, if you find it significantly wrong, please contact vRide so we may endeavour to correct it.

Why can't I save the data?

The Fuel Expenses, Fuel Gallons, Other Expenses and Odometer fields are validated to prevent bad data. Please look for a red line under any of these fields and amend it (such as increase or reduce figures after decimal place) until the line becomes green.

I'm not certain of my ridership right now. Can I just record the other fields and provide the ridership later?

No. To improve data fulfillment ridership data is required on your initial visit to the page. However, you can elect to save the scheduled defaults initially and later revisit (before the cut-off date) to amend.

Advanced Help

Catering for longer absence

If someone is absent from the van for a while it might be easier to specify when they did ride, rather than when they didn't. Clicking on the the riders name on the page brings up the row change menu. Selecting "Did Not Commute" from this will clear all their trips, ready for you to fill a handful of cells when they did ride.

Workplace Holidays

If your office, factory or facility is closed and nobody rode the van, the click on that date's cell to bring up the column change menu. Selecting "Did Not Commute" from this will clear all the rider's trips form that day.

Capturing Delays

If you want to provide wholly accurate data on a day where your journey was signifcantly delayed, you can edit eh Daily trip time t the bottom of the date column. This indicates the total time the vant spent travelling on that day (typcially the round trip to work and back).

The system knows about your standard commute trips and prefills last month with your scheduled rider's trips in the appropriate cells. All you need do is make any amendments for absence, vacation or illness. Follow the key to help with those amendments:

  • R stands for round-trip
  • W for workbound only trip
  • H for homebound only trip
  • ' ' (no value) for did not commute.

    Making Amendments to your vanpool's standard month's trips.

    Use you keyboard or mouse to navigate to the cell you wish to change. To change a trip use a single appropriate character using this key: Usually you will use R for round trip, as this covers both daily trips to and from work. To remove a trip, either delete the character in the cell or replace it with a space. Each cell that you change will show a red mark in the corner indicating it has a new value.

  • What is NTD?

    NTD is the National Transit Database. It is a mechanism through which the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) collects data on many forms of transit such as bus, rail and, of course, van pools.

    Why do we need to collect data for NTD?

    It helps the FTA to steer transit programs and apportion funding back into those programs including the subsidy to your vanpool.

    How can we provide this data?

    Each month you can provide it via the vRide.com website for the month just ended.

    What data should be provided?

    Who travelled on the van on each day and the distance they travelled. Don't worry we set up your van's regular trip information ready for you to submit. Also required are expenses (e.g. fuel and toll) and the odometer reading of the van at the end of the month.
