Village Vans Program Set to Resume Service

Olympia, WA – Intercity Transit’s Village Vans program will resume services on Tuesday, July 6. The program offers free employment-related transportation for low-income individuals in the Olympia, Lacey and Tumwater areas, as well as driver training and job skills development for anyone hoping to increase their work readiness.

Transportation services include getting people to work, job interviews, job training sites and to childcare centers. The service is provided Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Those needing transportation should call 360-705-5840 to find out if they are eligible.

Interns in the driver training and jobs skills portion of the program provide staffing needed to support the transportation element of the program. In return, participants learn marketable skills like using computers and software programs, resume and cover letter writing, and interview techniques. Participants also establish a work history, make connections and network with prospective employers. Those interested in volunteer internship opportunities should call 360-705-5831.
