TBARTA Regional School Commute Program
What is it?
The TBARTA Regional School Commute Program matches parents of
students at participating schools with other parents at those schools, so they
can arrange a carpool to school (a.k.a. School Pool), saving time and money.

process will be entirely web-based. Parents can create an online profile and instantly
receive a match list of other parents making the same daily trip. Then, parents

parents arrange “walking school bus” and “bike train” groups.

parents and students at area schools, and to further the goals of removing car
trips from our congested roadways.
Each participating school has a designated School Program
Coordinator (SPC), who can answer any questions about the program or help
