Campus Mobility Solutions

Providing user-friendly, low-cost transportation options to students can be a challenge for colleges and universities, particularly those in larger urban centers.

Making sure students have access to affordable and reliable travel to and from campus is an essential part of building a thriving school community, along with balancing the challenges of traffic and parking congestion.

That’s where the groundbreaking RideAmigos platform can help.

Students can instantly compare times and costs while factoring in the health perks and environmental impacts of each available option.

Educational institutions benefit from comprehensive user management and reporting tools that help budget managers and decision-makers implement the solutions that best meet the needs of their campus communities.

K-12 Schoolpool Solutions

Big yellow buses have long been the hallmark of school transportation, but in an age of soaring costs and shrinking budgets, school administrators have to be creative in their search for savings.

At RideAmigos, we’ve responded by developing a set of innovative tools that K-12 schools can use to meet the transportation needs of students while keeping costs to an absolute minimum.

The concept of the schoolpool is at the center of our solutions.

School Transportation - Busses

Schoolpools are carpools parents use to help get their students to and from school as efficiently as possible.

Our goal is to safely connect students who need rides with parents who offer them, and our program has already proven to be a great success.

Adopted by the Denver Regional Council of Governments, our schoolpool tools helped consolidate the transportation needs of students at a growing list of charter schools in the area. Within a year, we matched 16,000 families with children at more than 125 schools with personalized matches to schoolpool ride-sharing programs. Our easy-to-use technological tools also helped more than 6,000 new schoolpools form, with an average size of 2.6 families operating 4.4 days per week and covering an average one-way travel distance of 7.8 miles.

RideAmigos school transportation software helps K-12 schools save money, improve safety and foster a stronger sense of community.

Schools that adopt schoolpool ride-sharing programs help save much-needed money, funding programs and providing essentials that lead to a better education. That’s the biggest and most obvious benefit of our platform, but we also improve safety and help schools build stronger senses of community.

Schoolpools help parents connect and build friendships with one another, all while giving students a great platform for socializing outside the classroom. They also offer students a safe alternative to walking long distances to and from schools, easing worries for working parents who aren’t able to pick their children up in person every day.

Your school community will also benefit from:
· Reduced traffic congestion in pick-up and drop-off areas
· A reduction in pedestrian hazards around the school area
· More efficient allocation of parking resources
· Scheduling advantages and time savings
· Transportation programs that incorporate walking or biking can also help students improve academic performance
