Upcoming EventsGlendale Community College has operated two vanpools since 2002 and we are looking for additional riders!

Leasing and insurance cost are covered by the Glendale College District. Participation in a vanpool must be approved by your supervisor. Both vanpools run on a 9/80 schedule. Participants are allowed to leave 15 minutes early, if approved by their supervisor.
