The California Vanpool Authority (CalVans), established in 2011, is a Public Transit Agency providing commuter and farm worker vanpool services. The agency is formed through a joint powers agreement (JPA) between the councils of governments in Fresno, Imperial, Kern, Kings, Madera, Merced, Monterey, Sacramento, San Benito, San Joaquin, Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz, Stanislaus, Sutter, Tulare, and Ventura counties. CalVans is authorized to own, operate and administer a vanpool transportation system in the counties of these member agencies. It provides residents and businesses in the Stanislaus region the use of two services: the Farmworker Vanpool Program and the General Public Vanpool program. The CalVans Board of Directors is comprised of representatives from each of the member agencies. One voting member and an alternate is appointed by the member agency.
CalVans Board meetings are held monthly at the CalVans Hanford Office and a call-in option is available at the StanCOG office.
