Vanpool is just like carpooling, but with a few more people. Using a Spokane Transit 7, 12 or 15-passenger van, a group of people who live and work in approximately the same area commute together.
Vanpooling is ideal for people who commute at least 10 one-way miles to work. The vanpool group travels from home (or a prearranged meeting place) to work and back in a single, round trip. The volunteer driver is also traveling to work and is trained by Spokane Transit on defensive driving and safety.
If you are outside the area served by fixed route bus service, you can still take advantage of Spokane Transit. Sharing a ride to work and back is good for the environment and your pocketbook.
