Van Drivers

Want to make a positive impact in your community and make UMass a more accessible place? Come join the team that moves UMass as a Special Transportation Van Driver!

What is SpecTrans?

Special Transportation, or SpecTrans, is a free transportation service that provides students, staff, and faculty of UMass Amherst a way to better get around campus when they have a disability. These services are available for UMass community members with permanent or temporary disabilities. Our vans have special seating arrangements for passengers with mobility devices, and can transport our passengers to and from work, classes, and home.


How can you help?

SpecTrans is hiring! If you have a valid, class D driver’s license, have at least 3 semesters remaining as a UMass Amherst student, and love to drive, we want you to join our team! Driving pay starts at $14 per hour, and you’ll get a raise every semester. Our flexible scheduling fits around your classes, and you don’t need a special license.


Have a passion for helping others, making meaningful changes in the community, and improving people’s lives? Help us make UMass a more accessible place for everyone. Apply today!
