What our riders are saying

"Guys (and Gals): Referencing the Awards Program

Lord bless you! Thank you so much. I don't know how you keep being so generous.  You are a blessing." - Julio E Berríos

"I'm very grateful for the service you provide and for the friendly exchanges and flexibility you have given me. Thanks so much!" - Douglas E.


"Our success and the success of the company, in my opinion, is built on the principle of making things easy on the commuter. No pressure, no strict rules, etc. Our (informal) rules are based on having respect for each other." - Matt H.


"It has been great being part of the van riding experience and have gained many friends. Although commuting into DC everyday is not something most people look forward to, being part of the vanpool makes it much more bearable. Thanks for being a great van commuting company!" - Ken T.


"It's a good van. I've been vanpooling for over 20 years and it's the best one by far. Good people and good organization; and that comes from you guys!" - Larry B.

FAQ

FAQ

Why should I ride with you?

​We pride ourselves in keeping well-maintained, clean vehicles for safe and reliable transportation. We believe in providing quality service and maintaining contact with our customers. Patriotic AdVANtures covers Virginia and Washington DC. Find out whether or not vanpooling is for you!

What are your routes and their hours of operation?

​Most routes operate Monday-Friday and support the working hours requested by the riders. Please call if you have specific questions regarding our routes. We maintain schedules that meet the requests of our clients. New routes are always forming!

How does driving work?

​Vanpools rely on the riders to share the ride as well as the drive. Some of our vanpools have one or two individuals who prefer to drive and volunteer as "Primary Drivers", while other vanpools function under a "watch bill rotation" format to share the driving duties. We encourage our customers to be back-up drivers and show our gratitude to those who volunteer through various driver appreciation programs. All that is required to be authorized as a driver on one of our vans is to be 25 or older and have a valid driver's license with a safe driving record.
