SchoolPool to Help Organize Alternative Transportation

SchoolPool to Help Organize Alternative Transportation

St. Lucie Public Schools is working to increase participation in its partnership with South Florida Commuter Services (SFCS), which is a program of the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT).  SchoolPool is a software system that helps to connect interested parents who live near one another so that they can plan such activities as a “walking” school bus, bike pools, car pools, and the like.  The target audience for this program is parents in St. Lucie County who live within two miles of their student’s school; however, the program is open to any interested parents or guardians.  SFCS’s website includes a page designed for parents to register: http://www.goschoolpool.com/stlucie/
  
The program will prove beneficial to the schools and to the community in its potential to decrease overall traffic especially in school zones and, of course, in its overall green advantage resulting from less cars on the road.
