Vanpooling is a great way to commute — particularly because the vehicle is provided for you! Public vanpool providers maintain the van, pay for gas, handle scheduling, and find parking, all for an incredibly low monthly cost. Vanpool is the most cost-effective form of public transportation in the United States — it is even less expensive than riding transit!
With a few exceptions, vanpools are generally managed by the transit agency within your county of residence. Here are links to each agency’s vanpool page.
- King County Metro
- Community Transit (Snohomish County)
- Pierce Transit (Pierce County)
- Intercity Transit (Thurston County)
- Kitsap Transit (Kitsap County)
- Island Transit (Island County)
- Skagit Transit (Skagit County)
