Busy mornings? Point2point at Lane Transit District has a solution for that! And it’s FREE! Schoolsolutions offers transportation options to families with students grades K-12. Just enroll online and Schoolsolutions can match you to other families in your area that attend your child’s school. You will be updated if someone joins in your area and has a similar commute. Enrolling does not commit you to carpooling, walking, or biking, but it sure is a convenient option to have…just in case! It’s an easy way to develop contacts with families at your school to share in the walking, biking, or carpooling responsibilities.
