BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Match with other commuters traveling with their children to the same school with CommuteKern's School Pool.

Parents can register their school commutes through the ride-matching service to find other parents in the area. To begin using the service, the website requires an account. CommuteKern's mobile app allows commuters to log each ride taken on the service.

The ride-matching service is free, but those that utilize the service can arrange to cover the cost of mileage and gas. The rideshare service is available for commuters throughout Kern County.

CommuteKern has other commute options such as vanpooling, walking, bicycling, locating park-and-ride lots, and taking public transportation.
