Miami-Dade Public Schools and the Florida Department of Transportation are bringing SchoolPool to your School!
What is SchoolPool?
SchoolPool is a free service offered by the Florida Department of Transportation in cooperation with Miami-Dade County Public Schools. The program connects families interested in carpooling, biking or walking to and from school and provides incentives to parents and students who share the ride. It can even match families participating in before-and after-school programs. If you are tired of idling in the car pick-up line each day, SchoolPool is perfect for you.
How is SchoolPool beneficial for the school?
The FREE service offered to schools in Miami-Dade was designed to reduce traffic congestion, pedestrian hazards, parking demand, and environmental impacts around schools through the promotion of carpooling, bicycling, and walking. The program also provides awareness, education, alternatives, and incentives that can assist in reducing the number of vehicles traveling to schools each day during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up.
