Restart your commute with Vanpool!

Metro Vanpool is your shared, one-seat commute. Join or start a new King County Metro van with 3 or more commuters.

Flexible vanpool options are available, including for full-time, part-time and hybrid work weeks and for weekends, shift work and 24/7 schedules.

Benefits of Vanpool

Vanpool — the social commute. Rideshare with the people you know who share a similar commute—neighbors, coworkers, family members—in a one-seat ride to and from work.

Enjoy flexibility with a reduced work schedule – try a 3-day schedule, ride part-time or one way for your commute. Request a free bike rack for your van to combine biking with your vanpool trip.

Metro has temporarily reduced the minimum ridership from 5 to 3 people. It's a great time to start a vanpool with two other people and you'll have plenty of room in your minivan to add other people as desired.

Create your Vanpool's own shared agreements. Vanpool participants are in control of setting their vanpool operating guidelines, with Metro's support and guidance on things like meeting points, routes, and work schedules.

Know that King County Metro has you covered, by providing the van, gas, tolls, insurance, van maintenance, roadside assistance, and another ride in case of an emergency for one low monthly fare. Many employers subsidize vanpool—check with your HR department, transportation team or Employee Transportation Coordinator (ETC).

Convenient maintenance options - with multiple service locations near your home or work, as well as after hour drop-off service for comprehensive maintenance.
