In most areas, it’s time to go back to school. For many parents in Mechanicsburg, this means traveling to and from school twice a day. Carpooling with other parents in the Mifflintown area is a great way to not just save money but save time as well. Carpooling may sound hectic, but it can be extremely helpful if you follow these tips.

  • Contact other parents that are traveling to the same school or direction.
  • Pack water and snacks not just for the school-aged kids but also for young children along for the ride.
  • Make sure you and other parents are aware of the rules and are all in agreement with the rules.
  • Create a playlist of songs all the children will enjoy. It’s a great way to pass the time.
  • Unless you want to clean your vehicle daily, keep a trash bag in your vehicle because children can be very messy.
  • Make sure your vehicle has plenty of gas.
