In 2013, the Community Transit Board of Directors changed the way vanpool fares are calculated to tie them to federal mileage reimbursement rates and agency program costs. As a result, vanpool rates are adjusted every year as part of the agency budgeting process. Please review the 2014 Proposed Vanpool Rate chart to learn how vanpool rates are proposed to change in 2014.
The Board of Directors is scheduled to consider the 2014 Proposed Budget at its monthly meeting on Dec. 5. If approved, the vanpool rate increases would take effect on Jan. 1, 2014.
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 (425) 353-RIDE (7433) 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.
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 complete 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 www.dol.wa.gov. 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 or if you have any questions please contact a vanpool coordinator.
Contact a vanpool coordinator to sign up for a vanpool.
