Loyola High School Carpool GoKid Partnership

There are several carpool matching smartphone apps and services for employers, schools, or the general public. One example is Loyola High School’s partnership with GoKid, a carpool app that specializes in helping parents connect and create carpools with people they know and trust. Loyola High School in Los Angeles serves students who live across a broad geographic area, which means most students are driven to school. By partnering with GoKid, families can connect and create carpools for afterschool activities and daily trips to school, reducing the number of trips to transport students.
