2019 Transportation Plan

updated February 25th, 2019

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’re actively working to create safe transportation options in both Lexington and Newton.

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

Empow Studios EEC-certified After School Club was approved by the Lexington School Committee as an after school destination for LPS elementary students! Our staff is on-site at all 6 elementary schools to round up our students and put them on the after school activity bus. Below is the 2019-2020 school year cost for transportation to the STEM After School Club:

  • 1 day per week: $10.50 per ride
  • 2 days per week: $8.50 per ride
  • 3 days per week: $7.00 per ride
  • 4 days per week: $6.00 per ride
  • 5 days per week: $5.50 per ride.

Cost of our transportation program is paid out on a monthly basis.

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.
  • Zemcar – On-demand and scheduled rides for children ages 8-18.
  • GoKid – A carpooling app to find local parents
  • Care.com – After School transportation drivers available in/around Lexington

Newton Transportation Plan

Empow Studios is conveniently located off of Needham St, with ample parking for pickup and dropoff. Due to the regulations that disapproved Sheprd from being a transportation solution in Newton, we are currently assessing new transportation solutions for the Studio. If you are in need of transportation from your child’s school to the studio, here are some solutions:

  • Zemcar – On-demand and scheduled rides for children ages 8-18.
  • GoKid – A carpooling app to find local parents
  • Care.com – After School transportation drivers available in/around Newton
