What is it?
SchoolPool helps match parents who drive their children to and/or from school and are interested in sharing rides; it’s carpool matching for schools!
Why do it?
Parents who typically drive their child to school can partner with other parents in their area to share the cost and responsibility of transporting their children to and from school. Carpooling also reduces traffic congestion and air pollution around school zones.
How do I sign up?
If you’re interested in starting a SchoolPool at your child’s school, contact Lily Lowder at Commute Solutions to schedule a presentation with your PTA or school administration. All interested parents can sign up with Lily, who will help by matching parents who live nearby each other.
Parents can then arrange with each other to switch off driving mornings or afternoons, driving on particular days of the week, and so on.
