SchoolPool: A free carpool program provided by RideFinders


Looking for a free, easy way to set up a carpool with other parents at your child’s school?

Look no further than SchoolPool, a free ridematching service provided by RideFinders, the St. Louis region's rideshare program. In response to parent requests, the School District of Clayton is partnering with RideFinders to provide this unique service for all District families.
How does it work?

Registering for SchoolPool can be completed in five easy steps:
  1. Contact your child’s school to obtain the school’s secure pass code.
  2. Click here to register with SchoolPool using your email address and a password you create.
  3. Create a Parent Profile containing your name, address and contact information.
  4. Create a Student Profile with your child’s name, school with pass code and preferences.
  5. Run a SchoolPool Match to see if your profile “matches” with other parents from your child’s school. Contact the parents on your Match list to try to form a SchoolPool. If you are not matched with other parents, consider editing your profiles and running a new Match.
