About the Committee

The WSTA Vanpool Committee was formed in 2008 and is the most recent addition to the WSTA family. The group of vanpool professionals meets two to three times per year. Each meeting provides the opportunity for these industry experts to get together to share information, address common concerns, and anticipate upcoming needs.

Committee Goals & Objectives

The mission of the WSTA Vanpool Committee is to coordinate statewide support for continued efficient, low cost commute choices, in particular vanpooling, and to support economic growth while reducing environmental impacts.

Committee Leadership

The Committee is currently lead by Committee Co-Chairs Tommy Fernandez of Kitsap Transit and Greg Garrett of Spokane Transit. The Secretary is Lani Fowlkes of Pierce Transit.
