What is a Vanpool?

A vanpool is a group of 5 to 12 people who commute together in a comfortable passenger van. RiverCities Transit owns and maintains a fleet of 7- and 12-passenger vans which are assigned to commuter groups and driven by volunteers from the group. You must commute at least 10 miles in your van in each direction to start a vanpool and your commute must start or end within the Longview or Kelso zip codes. Vanpool riders pay a low monthly fare based on the number of miles traveled and number of riders. Fares cover all maintenance, insurance, and fuel. Some employers even pay part or all of their employees’ fares!
