Vanpoolโ€™s refreshed brand look throughout our marketing communication channels over the past few years comes at the talented and creative hands of Nina Nino. As vanpool communications specialist, sheโ€™s in charge of bridging the gap between vanpool and the public we serve, by managing our social media channels and designing marketing materials that promote the program. Among the many ways sheโ€™s broadened our reach is her role in the translation of our marketing collateral to Spanish. Her belief in information related to public transportation being accessible to all, is one of the reasons she is being honored as the future of vanpool. This #WomensHistoryMonth, we celebrate you and all your contributions to transit! Thank you!

Lucille "Lu" Chambers' service-oriented career brought her to the industry in 2007. She has held roles that have allowed her to gain expertise in all sides of vanpool. She is currently ensuring that we remain financially viable and accountable to the government entities that provide our funding through her current role, as Manager of Vanpool Billing and Reporting. This #WomensHistoryMonth, it is our pleasure to honor her present contributions toward the continued growth and strength of our program.

This #WomensHistoryMonth, we are proud to recognize Beverly Elam - one of our #TransitTrailblazers who paved the way for future generations of women in transit. โ€œI so believe in the vanpool message of sharing a ride to work and cleaning our air!โ€ The passionate words of former account executive and vanpool program manager, Beverly, who championed the cause of vanpool throughout the Houston Galveston region for eighteen years. Beverly's efforts played a significant part in further strengthening relationships with some of vanpool's longest-standing customers like Baker Hughes and Anadarko. She fondly recalls corralling new vanpoolers in the same zip code together to form a new vanpool route as "zip code parties", and reveled in the opportunity to assist the employees of corporations who would be relocating and suddenly realized they'd now have a longer commute to and from work. Her own bit of sage wisdom for successfully navigating through one's career is, "When changes happen as they always do, just hang on to the surfboard." We thank you, Beverly! Your contributions to our vanpool program and transit are invaluable.

This #WomensHistoryMonth, we are honored to recognize the future of vanpool. Kennedi Davis is very familiar with the phrase "First impressions are lasting impressions". She's consistently brought that understanding to her role as a Vanpool CSR & Waitlist Specialist by being on the front lines of welcoming prospective customers who are considering our vanpool service, helping them establish a new vanpool route or fill an empty seat on an existing route. Providing excellent customer service every day is just one of the reasons why she's considered the future of vanpool, and we're so excited to see where Kennedi's career flourishes from here.

Humor, sharp wit, and a personable approach to each client she encounters are just a few characteristics of Anita McLaurin. Her extensive sales savvy has made our vanpool team that much stronger over the past seven years through her role as a senior vanpool account executive and even garnered her the distinction of Vanpool Account Executive of the Year in 2019. Anita's talents have also been valuable to other areas of the agency, evidenced through her contributions to the OneMetro customer service program, as well as the transportation demand management industry agency overall serving on various committees throughout her seven years as a member of ACT (Association for Commuter Transportation (ACT). This #WomensHistoryMonth, it is our pleasure to honor her present contributions toward the continued growth and strength of our program.

This #WomensHistoryMonth, we are proud to recognize Vangie Soto Chairez - one of our #TransitTrailblazers who paved the way for future generations of women in transit. Vangie never thought that one day in 1979 she would start working for METRO. She started in the Community Relations department and then moved to Marketing, and later to Sales. Vangie worked with major oil and gas companies, law firms, and airlines as well as management districts like Downtown, the Texas Medical Center, and Greenway Plaza to help promote vanpool among their employees. Now retired, Vangie's advice for today's transit team is: โ€œKeep โ€˜em rollingโ€.
We thank you, Vangie! Your contributions to our vanpool program and transit are invaluable.

Meet Your New Commute

ยท Metro STAR is a vanpool program designed to save you money, time, and reduce stress on your daily commute.

ยท A vanpool is just like a carpool but in a van. It consists of 5 โ€“ 15 people who share similar schedules, and who live and work in the same areas.

ยท Metro STAR services an 8 county region including Brazoria, Chambers, Fort Bend, Galveston, Harris, Liberty, Montgomery, and Waller counties.

ยท Our team has all the resources to help you start your own vanpool, or join an existing one. New routes are constantly forming.
