Wiltshire Council have made the smartphone app HomeRun available to all Wiltshire schools, so you can find out more and sign up here https://www.homerun-app.com.
The app helps parents to car share, as well as providing useful information about how people are travelling to school, routes used and parking locations. It can help schools evidence their Healthy Schools accreditation, as well as support a Taking Action on School Journeys funding application.
Parents choose whether or not to download the app, set up their profile and can arrange to car share with other parents. We see that this would benefit a range of schools - smaller rural schools with little alternative to car travel as much as a large urban secondary.
