C-TRAN’s paratransit service, referred to as C-VAN, is an origin to destination, shared ride service that provides service within specified boundaries in Clark County, WA. C-VAN is a reservation-based service for riders whose disability prevents them from riding our fixed-route bus system. C-VAN service is designed to mirror fixed-route and is equal to, not better than, the fixed-route system. 

C-VAN is public transportation, so riders share their rides with others. C-VAN dispatchers work hard to group rides for efficiency, which is essential for meeting the demands of all riders for hundreds of trips scheduled every day.

C-VAN trips may be for any purpose, other than a medical emergency. Riders may use C-VAN to go to work, school, visits to friends and family, shopping, church, appointments, and many other trip purposes. C-TRAN may not give one trip priority over another.

All C-VAN riders must qualify and be approved for paratransit service before riding. For information on how to apply, click here.
