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.
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.
As a temporary COVID-19 measure, we've reduced the minimum rider requirements to only 2 people per van to give more flexibility with work schedules and to allow for physical distancing.
With a 2-rider minimum, 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 for distancing.
We require a mask on all Community Transit services and at all transit facilities. We provide a starter kit of masks for each new Vanpool and during Vanpool maintenance; additional masks available upon request.
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.
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.
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.
We've added helpful reminders within our vehicles about how to ride safely and we keep in touch with our Vanpool groups by email. Sign up for Vanpool Safety Updates to receive timely updates on any changes to our safety measures or recommendations.
We are proud to provide Vanpool service to riders who need it each and every day. We ask that you help by using our services responsibly and making safe choices before, during and after your ride.
Avoid riding if you are sick or think you may have been exposed to COVID-19.
Maintain a 6-foot distance from others whenever possible. Make the most of vehicle space by spreading out as much as possible within the van.
Wash your hands often, or use hand sanitizer when not near a sink, and avoid contact with common, high-touch areas.
