From King County Metro:
“King County Metro’s VanPool Program is here to help you get to and from work and stay healthy on your commute. We support social distancing through fewer riders per van, flexible schedules, and providing all vanpools with public health recommendations. Join a vanpool today to share the responsibility of driving, save money, and improve your commute.”

Looking to use to the Metro vanpool program? Here are some guidelines on health and safety:


  • Wear your mask or face covering—it’s required to ride!—and stay home if sick.
  • Agree to regularly wipe down commonly touched surfaces of your van between trips, and practice good hand hygiene.
  • Use Metro’s no-contact van maintenance to keep your van running smoothly, as needed.
  • Leave as much distance as possible between drivers and riders.
  • Keep the windows cracked or down to increase airflow when conditions allow.

Commuting from West Seattle? Cut your commute time and breeze by traffic in your Metro Vanpool by gaining access to the SW Spokane Street Bridge.
