The convenience and ease of sharing the ride makes vanpooling a great alternative to driving alone. Vanpooling saves you gas, money, and wear and tear on your personal vehicle. It also reduces pollution, congestion, and the need to build new roads.
A vanpool is a group of 5 to 15 people sharing the ride in a 7, 8, 12, or 15 passenger van. Vanpools serve groups traveling to and from work, whose trip origin or destination is within the county which operates the vanpool.
All DoD employees are eligible to receive $255 each month from the Mass Transit Benefit Program (MTBP). The benefit covers any commuting costs by transit to and from base-- including vanpools.
You save money because your vehicle can stay at home while you enjoy your free vanpool commute. This saves you gas money as well as the time and expense of having to deal with the car maintenance caused by your commute miles.
You can easily explore current vanpools on the Intercity Transit, Kitsap Transit, and Pierce Transit vanpool pages. If you see a vanpool that matches your route then please contact the vanpool bookkeeper directly.
Our team is ready to help you get your MTBP and find the correct vanpool for you. For help, please email the representative below depending on which category fits you best.
