Scheduled ride-sharing for K-12 students to and from our partner network of schools, camps, clubs, and after-school programs.
Use Sheprd’s mobile app to schedule and track one-time or recurring rides to or from our partner youth organizations. Rides start at just $17 per student, and you can book or alter a scheduled ride up until the evening before travel.
Sheprd’s 7D certified drivers and fleet of premium Land Rover SUVs lead the industry at every level in the safety of people, processes, and technology. We are exceedingly deliberate in ensuring student safety with Sheprd.
Students using Sheprd travel in comfort in Land Rover SUVs complete with in-car WiFi, Sheprd TV (powered by Neptune), and phone chargers. Sheprd provides, door-to-door transport, so there’s no hanging around at the bus stop.
Sheprd really reduces the stress of managing 3 kids’ schedules. My son gets to hockey practice safely and on time, and I can pick up the others from music and soccer on the other side of town.
All Sheprd rides either start or end at one of our partners. We currently partner with schools, camps, activity providers and afterschool organizations in Newton, MA.
For 20 years, All That Jazz has been a leader in the greater Boston area for dance studios. Miss Deb Lifson Vogel opened All That Jazz in 1998 with the desire to enable all children, regardless of experience or age, to learn the art and joy of dance.
The Conservatory is your community music school, where we can all learn and develop the craft of music together. We match you with a teacher who best fits your individual learning style, so that you can get the most out of your music education.
Out-of-School Time After-School Program: The YMCA offers a fun and safe after-school program for children in Kindergarten through 8th grade. Our qualified staff provides an exciting balance of active games, creative projects, homework time, choice time, and free swim.
I like riding with Sheprd because the drivers are always friendly; I can charge my phone and use the free WiFi in a wicked cool Land Rover. It’s way better than the school bus or Uber.
