2018 Transportation Plan

We understand it’s not an easy task when it comes to scheduling your family’s after school activities and planning the logistics that go with it. We’ve been working hand-in-hand with parents and partners, and we think we’ve come to some convenient solutions. Starting in Fall 2018, students attending Empow Studios After School programs in Lexington and Newton will have safe transportation, bringing kids from their schools directly to Empow.

Partnerships with local school committees, after school programs, and innovative transportation solutions, coupled with a strong customer base of passionate parents, have brought all of us together to make this happen. We thank our parents and partners for doing what we can to make a convenient solution for parents and the community.

Lexington Transportation Plan

As of March 28 2018, Empow Studios EEC-certified After School Club has been approved by the Lexington School Committee as an after school destination for LPS students. Because of this new change, we are very confident in providing a direct transportation plan from the schools to Empow. There is an additional fee associated with this transportation.

If you’d like to have alternative solutions to our direct drop-off, these options are available:

  • Lexpress – There is a stop nearby to all 6 elementary schools that is about a ~4min walk, and goes to Depot Square, across the street from Empow. Lexpress offers discounts to students, and they also stop directly at both middle schools.
  • GoKid – A carpooling app to find local parents
  • Care.com – After School transportation drivers available in/around Lexington
