Community Van Program

COMMUNITY VAN PROGRAM

Skagit Transit is pleased to announce the startup of the Community Van Program! We will be offering a 12 passenger van for agency approved non-profit and government agencies that specifically serve the special needs community. These agencies must have intermittent transportation needs that could be addressed and met by utilizing a Skagit Transit van. Our goal was to offer an alternative for special needs clients whose needs are not currently met by other transportation options such as fixed route or paratransit. The Community Van Program will not only increase community partnerships, but help support a connected community!
