Vanpools are a convenient, cost-effective way for 5 to 15 commuters to share their ride to work.

A vanpool consists of a group of people who live or work near each other and share similar commuting schedules. Each vanpool tailors its schedule around the group's needs, with members deciding pick-up and drop-off locations and times.

Riders are charged a monthly fee and CATS supplies the van, fuel, insurance and other administrative expenses.

CATS has two types of vanpool vehicles; a 7 passenger minivan and a 15 passenger van.


15 Passenger Vanpools:
This vanpool consists of nine to 15 passengers with one rider agreeing to be the driver and at least one other rider agreeing to be the backup driver.

Minivan Vanpools:
The minivan service consists of four to seven passengers with one rider agreeing to be the driver and at least one other rider agreeing to be the backup driver, but they can be started with three to four passengers.
