Kirkland SchoolPool is a program in partnership with the City of Kirkland, local schools, and King County Metro to carry out Safe Routes to School efforts. SchoolPool is a way for cities and schools to make it safer, easier and more fun for families to get to school by walking, rolling (such as biking, using a wheelchair, scooting) or carpooling.
The trip to school is a great time to connect with neighbors, try a new way of getting around while reducing traffic congestion and increasing safety around schools.

How to get involved in SchoolPool
Interested in routinely walking, biking, or carpooling to and/or from school with other families?
