VanPool


SEBCO VanPool van

The VanPool program provides commuter services for members of the Arkansas State Employees Association (ASEA) between home communities and job sites.

Anyone can ride on the VanPool: Although membership in ASEA is required for participation, being a state employee is not a requirement to be a member of ASEA. Associate memberships are also offered. Active member dues are $52.00 a year for state employees, and associate membership is $26.00 a year. For more information on joining the Arkansas State Employees Association, please see the ASEA website.

MORE ABOUT THE VANPOOL PROGRAM

The Arkansas State Employees Association has been serving commuters in central Arkansas counties since 1979. VanPool services are available to both public and private employees. SEBCO was formed in late 1987 as a subsidiary of ASEA to run the employees benefit programs, which include the VanPool Program.

Currently, around 21 vans are in operation transporting around 200 riders daily to and from their job sites. The VanPool operates on a fixed schedule Monday through Friday between home communities and places of employment. The riders meet at a central point in their community and are dropped near their job sites in Little Rock.

Each van is self-supporting. No subsidies from tax money support the operation of this program. Each van rider pays a set fee for riding. These fees cover fixed costs (cost of the van, insurance, taxes, and license) and variable costs (gas, maintenance, oil, tires, batteries, and repairs).

BECOMING A VANPOOL DRIVER

Van drivers and back-up drivers are employees who live in the area being served. To qualify as a driver, the employee must have a valid driver's license, be at least 25 years old, and must not have had a moving violation within the past three years.

The drivers must be responsible for driving each day, picking up and delivering riders on a set schedule, arranging with the SEBCO office for routine maintenance, cleaning their van, providing secure parking, and informing the SEBCO office of any changes in ridership.

ARKANSAS STATE EMPLOYEES ASSOCIATION

The Arkansas State Employees Association is a non-profit organization with a tax exempt status from the IRS. Each participant of a SEBCO program must be a member of the Arkansas State Employees Association.
