A Green Ways to School Guide for Green Teams
All Marin County parents and guardians can register at SchoolPool Marin to develop a matchlist of other families interested in forming a “SchoolPool.” Walk, bike, drive, or take the bus together to and from school – it’s fun, and the first 500 registrants will receive a Peets Coffee and Tea Gift card!
SchoolPoolMarin also includes:
After-School Trip Sharing- find travel companions to sports, rehearsals, classes, after-school care, camps...any kids activities! Request a match list from any location to any destination at any time-even on weekends and vacations!
Parents' Commute Option-request a carpool or bus buddy match list to your work and your child's school gets credit in the Green Ways to School Challenge. School staff can join, too!
