Intercity Transit is accepting applications for surplus vanpool vans. Multiple vans are available for granting to qualifying non-profit organizations and agencies. Applications are due Friday, October 23.

Non-profit organizations with 501(c)(3) status and agencies located within and serving residents of the Intercity Transit’s Public Transportation Benefit Area (PBTA), which includes the cities of Olympia, Lacey, Tumwater and Yelm and their urban growth areas, are eligible to apply.

Now in its seventeenth year, Intercity Transit’s Van Grant program has awarded 65 vehicles to meet the transportation needs of local organizations. Instead of selling them at auction, surplus vehicles were awarded last year through a competitive application and review process to the Coastal Community Action, Veterans for Suicide Prevention, Kokua Services, and Wa-Ya Outdoor Institute.

Application packets are available online, by calling (360) 786-8800, or by emailing For more information about the Van Grant program, contact Cindy Fisher, Vanpool Program Manager at (360) 705-5829 or Riley White, Commuter Services Assistant at (360) 705-5847.
