Save time, save money and connect with others—all in a day’s commute!

Commute to work with Metro’s new Kent Vanpool offer—the affordable, time-saving and fun way to go.

Our $49 reduced monthly fare — offered to eligible riders who live or work in Kent — is a value you don’t want to miss. Apply to be a volunteer driver and form your new vanpool with only two other commuters today!

Why join a vanpool?

Convenience and value can be yours. Vanpool members share driving responsibilities and coordinate routes, work hours and pick-up locations for their commutes.

Everything you need is included in your monthly vanpool fare:

  • the van
  • gas, tolls, maintenance and insurance
  • roadside assistance and emergency rides home

"Vanpool is a convenient, environmentally-friendly option that saves time, money and fuel for myself and others."
