Determining the best mode and route to school can easily be done by starting with the home address of each student. As solutions for each student get built, they can be combined to create a set of solutions for the school. For instance, if there are three kids on the same block within walking distance of the school, they become a "walking train" perhaps with parents taking turns accompanying them. In another area, the kids may meetup on bicycles to travel together. Others may need bus service, while still others may be able to use IndyGo or carpooling.
These solutions provide safety for the students, as well as some accountability for getting to school.
