Van Pool seeks members

It leaves from Albertson's parking lot on Union and Research at 5:45 a.m. and arrives at Schriever AFB around 6:15 a.m. The van leaves Schriever at 3:30 p.m. and returns to Albertson's around 4:15 p.m. This is a great way to reduce wear and tear on your car, save money and relax on the way to/from work. The cost is $115 per month. For government civilians and military, the cost is covered. Some companies also offer reimbursement for van pools so contractor cost will depend on your company’s policy.
