Dear Principal [Insert Name Here],
Please enroll our school in Schoolpool, the secure system that helps families share the ride to school. It’s administered by Commuter Connections, part of the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments.
School administrators love Schoolpool because it relieves traffic congestion around school during arrival and dismissal, helps alleviate bus driver shortages, and creates community within school. Commuter Connections provides the Schoolpool platform for FREE to schools; your responsibility is to regularly promote the program to families at school.
How it works: Families opt-in to a specific school’s Schoolpool program, using a link exclusive to each school. Once enrolled, families connect with nearby families or ones who live along the way to share the ride to school via carpooling, walking, biking, or riding METRO together.
Contact Commuter Connections at email@example.com and 800-745-7433 to learn more!
