Vanpool

Plan Your Trip >>

Outside the bus zone? Try a Vanpool.

Get to know people in your community and share a ride to work in a vanpool.  Be social, save money, and impact the environment by taking your car off the road — every day.

Anyone with a commute that starts, stops, or passes through Clark County is eligible for C-TRAN’s Commuter Vanpool service.

What is a vanpool?

A vanpool is a prearranged group of 5 – 13 people sharing a ride to and from work on a regular schedule and is similar to a carpool except C-TRAN provides the vehicle. The great thing about forming a vanpool is each vanpool group controls its route and schedule.

If you have at least five fare-paying passengers and can provide a lead and backup driver, you can lease a vehicle from C-TRAN and start a vanpool.

How does it work?

Vanpool passengers pay a low monthly fare of the daily mileage divided by the number of passengers.  This monthly fare is used to cover operating costs like fuel, insurance, and maintenance.  There’s also an Emergency Ride Home program included, so you never have to worry about getting stuck at work in case of an emergency.

Vanpooling is cost-effective for work trips that are at least 20 miles round trip with people living and working in the same areas during the same hours.
