Return those vans

Community Transit wants people who use vanpools but are now working from home to park at a driver’s home, so the vehicles aren’t left unattended and unused.

The vanpool office remains open, but some staff are working from home.

Call the office at 425-438-2926 or email vanpool@commtrans.org. Remember to include the van number with any message.
