 FORTUNOFF VANPOOL MILESTONE SPARKS FEASIBILITY STUDY BY
 NASSAU'S LEADING INDUSTRIAL PARK TO NETWORK 15,000 WORKERS
 In honor of LI Group Commute Week and the 30-month milestone of the Fortunoff employee van pool program, Alan Fortunoff, president of Fortunoff, will greet employees stepping off their corporate-sponsored minibus with a champagne breakfast on Wednesday morning, April 22, at 9 a.m., at Fortunoff's west side entrance, off of Old Country Road, Westbury, N.Y.
 Since the program began, the employee van pool program has eliminated 9,240 single-occupancy vehicle trips, saved 33,390 gallons of gasoline, eliminated 8.4 tons of auto emissions and saved $40,050 in gasoline and maintenance costs.
 To symbolize the amount of gasoline saved, a 40,000-gallon tanker truck will be on hand. Participants in the innovative vanpool will be available for interviews.
 Also present will be Richard DeTurk, executive director of Long Island Ridesharing, and Roger Tilles, whose company owns Nassau County's largest industrial park, the 224-acre, 15,000-person Nassau Crossways International Plaza in Woodbury and who will announce the beginning of a feasibility study that seeks to create similar innovative programs to help reduce traffic.
