King County Metro SchoolPool

The King County Metro SchoolPool program works through the ridesharing resource by connecting school administrators with parents to help set up  networks across parents and students to coordinate carpools, and walking and biking trips to reduce single occupancy vehicle (SOV) trips and car emissions.

SchoolPool allows municipalities and communities to reduce vehicle congestion around schools.

SchoolPool is a free and secure service. SchoolPool is for children attending public or private elementary, middle, high schools.

2. If your school does not have a SchoolPool program set up, ask them to contact the email address below for information. Participating providers can help set up a  secure network at your school for free.
