SchoolPool is a free, safe and secure carpool matching service that connects you with other parents of kids who attend your child's school.
This growing program allows school administrators to encourage parents to register online using a ridematching database and set up a system to enable and share carpooling duties with other parents. This system can reduce trips and emissions and cut down on congestion near schools. SchoolPool is offered as a benefit to administrators and parents at selected King County schools. The City of Redmond has been running the program for a few years now in select schools. The City of Issaquah is evaluating options to launch this year as well.
The City of Bellevue has partnered with King County Metro to bring this to select Bellevue schools in 2016-2017 school year. Eight pilot schools have been chosen to participate.
- Somerset Elementary School
- Puesta del Sol Elementary School
- Stevenson Elementary School
- Forest Ridge School of the Sacred Heart
- Odle Middle School
- Tyee Middle School
- Newport High School
- Sammamish High School
When you join Choose Your Way Bellevue SchoolPool pilot program, you are invited to form a carpool, walk or bike group with another child traveling to or near your child's school. SchoolPool uses a secure, online ridematching database, open only to families of participating schools, to help you find a travel solution that works for you and your family. You can offer to transport a group of students, or work with another family to bring your child to and from school.
It's free to participate in this program, and you can earn rewards for your child and your child's school! If you'd like to participate, check your inbox for an email from your school with a link to sign-up. If you have questions email info@CYWB.org.
The Choose Your Way Bellevue SchoolPool team is hard at work developing the program specifics and more materials will be available over the summer. Take a look at our SchoolPool FAQs further information on the program, and feel free to contact email@example.com with any questions.
