Back to School Countdown Day 6: Car Pool

Posted by   + Show Post

Do you share the driving responsibility with anyone else? If possible, drive with another set of parents to a school event. If you take turns, you'll save money on gas. You can even ‘car pool' with your own family. Pick up your spouse or older kids instead of meeting somewhere.

Do you car pool? Do you think about how much gas costs when you have to go somewhere?

We carpool with our neighbor. It works out for all of us:)

I do not car pool. I drive my kids or they walk since we are close to the schools.

Live on a school bus route. My taxes pay to keep them running.

I don't car pool cause my kids ride the bus.

No but when I drive to go to the store I always try to consolidate tris and get as much done as possible.

We'll be homeschooling this yr. No driving or walking necessary. No more school buses.

2 weeks a month I'll be driving one of my friends kids since I'm babysitting her.

 I dont car pool, bc my kids ride the bus. However, on the days that my neighbor or I drive the older kids to school, for extra curricular activities, then we do car pool :)

They ride the Bus but we do carpool for after school activity , Youth Group and Boy Scouts.

My kiddos can walk. We're less than a mile from the school. But we've carpooled previously when it was a long drive away.
