Send the Kids Back to School with Metro’s Carpool Program

With gas prices on the rise again, it only takes elementary math to calculate a dramatic hike in the cost of driving kids to and from school this fall. So why not join Metro’s School Pool program? Participating in a carpool can teach children math. Just one three-mile drive can cost about $3.35, round trip. Multiplied by five, that equals $16.75 a week, based on AAA’s formula of 56.2 cents per mile. Wouldn’t it be nice to have $16 extra for backpacks and lunch money each week?
