  • Time savings: By joining a vanpool your friends will envy the extra time you get to relax, read, or get work done.
  • Guaranteed Ride Home: If an emergency arises while you're at work, our Kitsap Transit vanpoolers qualify for a Guaranteed Ride Home. Click here to learn more about our Guaranteed Ride Home program
  • One monthly fare: When you vanpool, your monthly fare is all-inclusive and covers all costs to ride. 
  • Your employer may cover your cost: Your employer may subsidize the cost of your vanpool. Check with your HR department or Employee Transportation Coordinator (ETC) for more information.

"It was one of the easiest things I’ve ever done, signing up for (the vanpool program)...
On top of it all, if you get lucky enough, your employer may have an incentive program where they pay, in my case 75% of (the vanpool fee), so it's dirt cheap to take the vanpool."
