Vanpool Incentive Program receives international award

Bothell recently received an international award from the Association for Commute Transportation (ACT) for its Vanpool Incentive Program, developed and implemented by the city's Carpool and Vanpool Services program.
   The city's program was honored in the Outstanding Service Award category defined as "An individual or organization that developed a service to meet identified commuter needs and/or concerns." The ACT 2001 award was announced at the international conference in Portland, Oregon. Community Transit nominated the City for this award.

The program has created 33 new vanpools and now have 54 total traveling to Bothell business parks from as far as Bellingham and Tacoma since the service began in 1999," said Bothell Public Works Director Dave Zabell. "Transportation remains a top priority for the city. This program represents the city's efforts to look at all options in its efforts to improve traffic circulation in Bothell."
