With gas prices on the rise, many commuters from Cherokee County may be considering alternate routes to get to work. Fortunately, there are some options. Vanpooling is a great, cost-effective alternative for your daily commute. Participants can enjoy the convenience of sharing a stress-free ride to work with others in a friendly environment that’s easy on their wallet.
For anyone interested in joining the Cherokee County vanpool, times and pick-up locations are listed below:
For work hours: 7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
First pick up point: Publix – Prominence Point Exit 14 Holly Springs – pick up time is at 6:30 a.m.
