Imagine your morning commute to school free from the chaos of honking cars and congested drop-off lines. Even better, what if you didn’t have to drive your student to school five days/week? With school carpooling, this can be your new reality!
THE GOOD NEWS!
Carpooling has proven to be an effective way to save money and time. For example, carpooling, using transit, walking, or bicycling-just one day a week for a year can save the typical commuter about 1,200 miles on their vehicle and about $455 in total driving costs. If everyone carpools for at least one day a week, the traffic on the road will be reduced by 20%.
When families work together to share driving responsibilities, it does more than just reduce the number of cars on the road. This cooperative effort speeds up the school run, saves precious time, and lessens stress. Carpooling also creates opportunities for our children to build friendships and begin their day in a positive, relaxed manner, enriching our entire school community.
