Vanpool Program Enrollment
How To Join a Vanpool
Those interested in joining a vanpool should check the Vanpool Routes and Schedules information page to determine if there is a vanpool from your area with a schedule that matches your work schedule. If so, email Joanna Palmer, the vanpool coordinator, or call at 831/459-4289 to find out if there is an available seat in the vanpool that you want to join.
If a vanpool opening exists you can commence enrollment by printing and submitting the Vanpool Application, plus the Employee Passenger Agreement, or the Student Passenger Agreement.
Submit your completed forms in one of the following ways: by Campus Mail to Joanna Palmer at TAPS-Carriage House; by USPS to Joanna Palmer, 1156 High St., TAPS-Carriage House, University of California, Santa Cruz, CA 95064; by Fax: 831-502-7943; or scan and email to Joanna Palmer.
How To Change Vanpools
If you are enrolled in a vanpool and need to change vanpools because of a schedule change you must make arrangements with the vanpool coordinator before switching vans.
Temporary Leaves of Absence and Medical Leaves
If you are taking a leave of absence or medical leave and want to temporarily leave a vanpool you must notify the vanpool coordinator in advance. Your seat can be held for up to three months as long as you make arrangement for payment during your leave. If payment is not received and you do not notify the vanpool cooordinator, fees will accrue for missied months, with payment due upon your return.
Leaving the Vanpool Program Permanently
To disenroll in the vanpool program you must contact the vanpool coordinator or fees will continue to accrue. If you received a bus pass or daily scratch-off parking permits through the vanpool program you must return those by the end of your last month on the van to avoid additional fees for not returning program items.
