About Van Pool

OUR MISSION

To positively and significantly contribute to the success of our students, our schools, and our communities.

Whatever it Takes

In 1986, Van Pool was founded with the idea of partnering with school districts to provide superior service and expertise in transporting special needs students to and from educational settings. Since that time we’ve steadily grown by providing best in class service, creating significant value to our school district partners.

As we’ve grown, we’ve always maintained a local presence with fully staffed bases in Wilbraham, Barre, Hudson, Fitchburg, Wrentham and Duxbury, serving over 100 school districts and 5,000 students in Massachusetts and Connecticut.

Van Pool has built its brand upon doing “Whatever It Takes” to ensure that the individual requirements of our students are met each and every day.
