The British Columbia Government funded the development of an online "hub" for resources on to and from school transportation emissions. It includes a GHG, fuel cost and calories (walking and biking) calculator and reduction planner. It also has the facility to post individual student results into a database for roll up at a classroom, school, school district and province level. Launched in October 2009 and getting lots of use by teachers, school districts, and by municipal governments in their TDM planning. The site and tools were designed to be easily customized and replicated for other jurisdictions.

Our organization, Passion for Action recently developed a Google map based tool for British Columbia students to calculate their emissions getting to and from school. It does have an element of ride sharing. See the MyTravel calculator at www.hastebc.org. This tool can be converted to work with any school or school district.
