Notice Regarding 15-Passenger Vans

Effective September 1, 2015, the use of 15-passenger vans manufactured before 2005 will no longer be allowed in connection with Scouting programs and activities. Any 2005 or later 15-passenger vans may be used if equipped with Electronic Stability Control and seat belts for all passengers as well as the driver. This applies to all vehicles, regardless of ownership.

This prohibition must be effectively communicated to all unit leaders and chartered organization representatives in a manner that ensures it is received and understood. The use of pre-2005 15-passenger vans could result in there being no BSA GLIP insurance coverage available in the event of an accident.
