Welcome Smart Commuter
CELEBRATING 30 YEARS IN 2016!!
The convenience and ease of sharing the ride makes vanpooling a great alternative to driving alone.
Vanpooling saves you gas money and wear and tear on your personal vehicle. It also reduces pollution, congestion, and the need to build new roads.
A vanpool is a group of 5 to 15 people sharing the ride in a 7-, 8-, 12-, or 15-passenger van. Our vanpools serve groups traveling to and from work, whose trip origin or destination is within Pierce County. Vanpoolers pay a low monthly fare that covers fuel, maintenance and insurance costs.
Join an existing vanpool or form your own group - it's simple!
Vanpool riders pay a low monthly fare based on round trip commute miles and number of monthly riders. The primary driver's fare is usually free in exchange for operating the van. Fares cover the costs of operating the van, including fuel, maintenance and insurance.

Forming a new vanpool group is as easy as 1-2-3!
- Get your group. Find 4+ others who work with (or near) you and also live near you. Provide us with signed participant agreements from each of them. Each vanpool group also needs at least 3 volunteers: 2 drivers and 1 bookkeeper. The bookkeeper can be one of the drivers. We provide the required bookkeeper and driver applications and the training.
- Map your route. Decide where you will pick up riders, and the route you will travel to get to work.
- Find your fares. Fares are based on your work schedule (5-day, 4/10's, etc.), the number of people in your group, and the roundtrip mileage.
Our recruitment team will guide you through the rest of the process.
