SchoolPool is a program that encourages students to use public transportation to get to and from school instead of being driven by a parent. SchoolPool works towards the goal of helping parents reduce the number of trips they make driving students back and forth to school. Less traffic and cleaner air contributes to a safer and healthier environment for everyone in the community. The Central/East Contra County SchoolPool Program offers free introductory County Connection or Tri-Delta Transit bus tickets for up to two (2) students in each eligible household.
- SchoolPool is open to students who attend middle or high schools (grades 6-12) located in Antioch, Brentwood, Clayton, Concord, Martinez, Oakley, Pittsburg, Pleasant Hill, Walnut Creek, and the unincorporated areas of Central/East Contra Costa County. (If you live in a city not listed here, please see Other school transit programs serving Contra Costa communities below.)
- A parent or guardian must complete an application and pledge that their student will ride the bus to and from school instead of being driven by the parent.
- The parent or guardian must agree to complete a follow-up survey to assess the effectiveness of the SchoolPool Program.
- County Connection and/or Tri-Delta Transit tickets are available for up to two (2) students per household on a first-come, first-served basis while tickets last. This is a one-time offer.
- Transit tickets will be mailed to the student at the home address listed on the application.
- Lost, stolen or damaged bus passes will not be replaced.
