We encourage families to share the ride or to walk or bike together to school. Our SchoolPool program and Safe Routes to School toolkit will give you the tools and resources to find smart, shared travel solutions to get your students to and from school, and after-school activities more efficiently.


Families save money by splitting the driving costs.

Carbon emissions are cut by reducing car traffic around schools.

Walking and biking may improve students’ health and wellness.

Easy as 1, 2, 3

In partnership with cities, school districts and schools, SchoolPool can help you coordinate sharing the trip to and from school, whether by carpool, by foot, or on a bike.
