The Community Vans program helps nonprofit groups and government agencies with their transportation needs by providing a ready-to-go van for up to 12 people.
How Does it Work?
You recruit volunteer drivers, and we approve, train and certify them free!
You coordinate your trip, then call us in advance to reserve a vehicle.
Is There a Fee?
Yes. It is currently $0.68 per mile for each trip. We maintain and insure the van.
How do we Qualify?
You must have a driver who is approved, trained and certified by Intercity Transit. Your trip must originate within Intercity Transit's service area and remain within 150 miles of this area. The service area includes Olympia, Lacey, Tumwater, and Yelm.
How Does the Volunteer Driver get Started?
Simply print out the Community Van Operator Application, fill it out, mail it to Community Vans, P.O. Box 659, Olympia, WA 98507, or fax to Community Vans, 360-357-6184. We'll review your application and send you information about the next training class.
How do I Schedule the Van?
If you already have an Intercity Transit certified driver and are a nonprofit or government agency you can schedule a van by e-mailing email@example.com or calling 360-786-8800.
Tell us when you need the van, then we will reserve it for your group's use and make arrangements for you to pick up the keys.
