Schools add transit options for unique travel needs
The K12 transportation landscape is getting increasingly complex, as districts
wrestle with issues ranging from school
choice and questions of equity to how to
subsidize mass transit for urban students.
In some districts, services that
employ parents as drivers have rolled in
to fill the gap.
In Seattle, Mayor Jenny Durkan has
proposed making year-round, public
transit free for high school students. In
Boston, they can buy discounted passes.
Yet public transit systems don't
always provide service where students
need it. In Denver, students can apply
to any school in the city, which means
many don't attend at the building in
their neighborhood. The city's transportation system mainly moves passengers
to jobs downtown. It's not designed to
take students from one neighborhood
to a school in another, says Betheny
Gross, research director with the Center
on Reinventing Public Education at the
University of Washington Bothell.
This situation raises questions of
equity, as some students may not find a
ride to higher-performing schools, says

Gross, an author of the report "Can
Public Transportation Improve Students' Access to Denver's Best Schools
of Choice?"
"The routes aren't particularly useful
for a lot of kids," Gross says. "It would
still take a lot of time to get to quality
schools."
Care-drivers at the wheel
While the Denver district is working to
open quality schools in more neighborhoods, its transportation staff will also
look at adding multimodal transit alternatives that suit individual students'
needs, Gross says.
One new option comes from a company called Hop, Skip, Drive, which
employs parents, teachers, nurses and
others as "care-drivers." Its drivers are
vetted extensively and must have at least
five years' experience as a caregiver, says
CEO Joanna McFarlan.
Hop, Skip, Drive-which expanded
recently to Denver from Southern
California and the San Francisco Bay
Area-partners with districts to provide
trips for smaller groups or single stu-

caregivers as drivers.

dents, when using a bus would be costinefficient. For example, the company,
which has done about 400,000 trips,
has provided transportation for special
ed students in Pasadena USD and has
run shuttles between schools for Arcadia USD.
"We take the problem that a school
is having and design a solution around
that," she says.
