Pogo is THE way to find shared rides for your kids with people you can trust. Find people in your community - schools, teams, and neighbors - then get organized with lightning fast ride creation, organized messaging, and everything synced to your phone’s calendar. Already have a carpool? That’s great, too - use Pogo to remember who’s driving and who’s riding and manage all the changes that life throws at you.
With Pogo you’ll be the most organized and connected parent on the block.
Pogo empowers parents to…
Discover other parents going the same way (i.e., that same family you keep seeing at the soccer field) using Pogo’s route matching technology
See the connections you share with other potential drivers - mutual friends and trusted groups such as your child’s school, sports team, dance studio, or summer camp
Get rewarded for the rides you’re already doing
Get organized with ride-related messages, automatic calendar integration, real-time ride tracking, and more
And Pogo enables schools to…
Provide a way for families to easily connect and carpool to and from school
Get recognized as a school committed to reducing traffic and congestion
Smooth out the stress at pickup and drop-off
Increase the sense of community among your parent population
“Pogo has been a great partner with University Prep in helping us encourage more families to carpool. The app is user friendly, helps reinforce our strong sense of community, and the Pogo staff has worked with us every step of the way to educate our families about the many benefits of using Pogo.”
- Kathy O’Neal, Director of Enrollment Management, University Prep
“Pogo appealed to our school with its brilliant simplicity of design and easy-to-use functionality in providing a service to reduce the difficulty of transporting students. From many conversations, families are excited to have an expanded network that will decrease the amount of their time spent on school and activity rides.”
- Steve Rudolf, Assistant Director of Admissions and Enrollment Management, Eastside Catholic
Special thanks to Verizon for their support with a $1 million grant to Pogo as the 1st place winner in the transportation category for the 2015 Verizon Powerful Answers Award.
HOW POGO WORKS
Life can be messy. Carpool doesn’t have to be. Here’s all you need to get started…
1. Download the app
2. Complete the registration process in 60 seconds or less
3. Enter the routes that you commonly drive and the days of the week you’re available (you can switch these routes on and off at any time)
4. Connect to other Pogo users and groups like your child’s school or sports team
5. When you need a ride, we’ll show you other parents going the same way
6. You decide if you want to connect in the app or in person and set up a shared ride – and we have all the tools to keep that ride running smoothly.
Parent powered. We got this!
Group member maps are back! Apologies for the delay as we know that this is a very useful feature in Communities.
Ratings and Reviews
Pogo has been a real game changer for my family ever since we’ve started to use for my son’s soccer practices. Being working parents and figuring out the logistics of getting him to / from soccer practice 2x week is no small thing. Pogo had given us the freedom and security we were looking for to get our son to a 6:00 practice twice a week! Plus, we only have to drive every 2.5-3 weeks, which makes it all the better. If you’re into freeing up time for yourself and family, you might want to jump on board with POGO!
Helped me find a new carpool crew
Pogo helped me find families to carpool to and from soccer. i didn’t have any options on my daughter’s team, but Pogo helped me find other families in the soccer club that i would never have found otherwise because they were on different teams. A huge help!
Used to be a great app
They completely revamped this app. They took a sufficiently useful app and made it completely unusable. You tell it “where you want to go” and it puts it as your pick-up location. You try to fix that for all future rides, and it creates 20 rides for the exact same date. Then you say your flexible to drive, and it marks you are driving. Even though I have other users in my app, it says there is no one in my pool and no intuitive way to add them.
