Getting You There Safely in a Vanpool

Partnering with you for a safe & healthy ride

Community Transit's Vanpool service helps people get from where they are to where they want to be throughout Snohomish County and beyond. We work hard every day to make sure your ride is a safe and healthy one. But we need your help too.

What we are doing to help protect our riders

We’ve always been committed to making your Vanpool ride a safe one, and that’s true now more than ever. You’ll see our commitment to safety throughout your journey with us. 

Space for distancing

Extra space if you need it

With flexible scheduling options and a variety of vehicle sizes (7, 12 and 15 passenger vans), we have many options available to make sure each Vanpool group has the space they need.

Masks required and provided

Masks optional & provided

While masks are not required for using Community Transit services, you are always welcome to wear one to help protect yourself and others. We provide a starter kit of masks for each new Vanpool and during Vanpool maintenance; additional masks available upon request.

Disinfecting kit provided

Disinfecting kit provided

We provide a starter kit of disinfecting products for each new Vanpool and at Vanpool maintenance visits. Each vehicle is also disinfected before being issued to a new Vanpool group, during Vanpool maintenance, and when provided as a loaner.

Air flow and circulation

Airflow & circulation

With the fan on high and pulling air from the outside, the air inside of our vans is exchanged with fresh air about every 50 seconds. As weather allows, riders may also open windows for additional air circulation.

Contact-free maintenance

Contact-free maintenance

Our professional mechanics service your Vanpool vehicle every 6 months/5,000 miles to keep it in top condition. Maintenance appointments are a breeze — self-service, contact-free, scheduled at your convenience and with a disinfected loaner vehicle provided.
