Supporting student success means making sure all students can get to activities they’re interested in, and families have the transportation they need to stay involved. Students and families who participate do better!
Penny Boynton, YOUR SCHOOL TRANSPORTATION LIAISON!
As your School Transportation Liaison, I can share information on existing transportation services and resources, and/or help problem-solve transportation challenges. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 266-3554.
CARS ARE FOR DRIVING FULL: Find or offer a ride, and help make the whole community successful! For help setting up carpooling or shared rides, contact your Transportation Liaison (see above) or call Sophie at Way2Go at (607) 272-2292 x184. Or talk directly with other parents/caregivers, your child’s coach, drama director, afterschool program teacher, or other activity leader, to offer or look for a ride.
HELP WITH RIDESHARING: Way2Go also offers a guide to ridesharing that can help you support parents and caregivers like yourself who want to do more ridesharing! To get the guide and/or volunteer to help out, contact your School Liaison, your child’s activity leader, or Way2Go, as shown above.
TCAT BUS PASSES Are available for students who can use a TCAT bus route for transportation to or from school-based (or related) activities. Contact your school transportation liaison or Way2Go.
INSTANT HELP USING TCAT BUS ROUTES: Download a free app from iTunes called Ride 14850 for instant bus info based on where you want to go. The app is not affiliated with TCAT, but is based on TCAT’s route maps.
School Rides offers rides to school meetings and events by volunteer drivers, when possible. Contact RED at least a week ahead by emailing email@example.com. If you call at the last minute, they will try but it’s harder to find a ride. If you have a car, consider volunteering to help families get to meetings. You decide which and how many rides to offer—even just one ride makes a difference!
See Way2Go’s videos on using the bus, carsharing and ridesharing at way2go.org.
