Community Transit


Vanpool Program

Vanpool Program

Community Transit vanpools must begin or end in Snohomish County. Vanpool coordinators provide support for group formation, driver orientation, vehicle maintenance and rider recruitment. Call 1 (888) 814-1300 for more information.

A vanpool is a group of 5-15 commuters who ride to work together in a van provided by Community Transit. Vanpools generally follow a set schedule and route, but unlike a bus, these are set by the riders themselves. Fares are based on the size of the van and the daily round-trip mileage. Fares cover all gas, maintenance and insurance.

Vanpool Driver Orientation

All vanpool drivers must have at least 5 years driving experience and possess a valid driver’s license. Before you can be scheduled for Vanpool Driver Orientation, you will need to obtain a copy of your driving record from the Department of Licensing (DOL). This report must be a five-year record and will say “Volunteer Organization/Transit Authority” at the top of the report. Any other type of record that does not contain complete information will not be accepted. You will need to visit your local Department of Licensing to make the request, or you can obtain a copy immediately online at You will be charged $13.

Once you obtain your driving record fax or email it to one of the vanpool coordinators listed below. Please write your vanpool number and daytime phone number on the fax. The driving record cannot show any moving violations or preventable accidents within the past 3 years.

To request Vanpool Driver Orientation, which can be done online, or if you have any questions please contact a vanpool coordinator.
