Transportation
It is our mission to creatively use the funding we receive as a charter school to maximize educational opportunities. Carpools and the City Bus system are the two main modes of transportation used by RCHS students.
NOTE TO ALL DRIVERS:
» Watch for messages related to Student Parking and Traffic Flow on the RCHS website, in the Phoenix News and posted in RCHS's Main Office.
» Be courteous.

How to Arrange a Carpool

The carpool form is now active. Submit your information here! Any families who wish to make new carpool arrangements for the 2019-2020 school year must submit information to our Carpool Database by completing the online Carpool Interest Form.

Your information will added to a contact list which will be distributed to other RCHS families who would like to arrange carpools. Updated versions of the contact list and map will be distributed via email in mid-June, mid-July, and early-August. Once you receive this information, you are free to contact other families for purposes of forming a carpool. Completing the Carpool Form does not guarantee a workable carpool or any other means of transportation.

NOTE: Returning families, please help us in welcoming our new families by including your information so that new families who live near you will have the option to participate in your carpool.

Questions? Contact carpool@raleighcharterhs.org to reach the Phoenix Parents Carpool Coordinator. Please include your student's name.


Parking Permits

Parking permits will be sold on the first day of school (August 13, 2019) at the Coursepack Sale. All students who entered the lottery in Sprign 2019 will have first priority on parking space selection. Remaining spaces will be sold first-come, first-serve to those who did not enter the lottery. The parking permit fee is $200. Each student purchasing a permit must have a driver's license by the end of 2019.

A completed Parking Permit registration form must be submitted in order to purchase a parking permit.

GoTriangle Bus System

In August 2018, GoTriangle public transit launched the Youth GoPass program which allows youth ages 13 to 18 to ride the GoTriangle, GoRaleigh, GoCary, and GoDurham buses at no cost. Student must submit a completed application with proof of age to obtain the pass. Use these links for information about the Youth GoPass program and bus routes. The Youth GoPass application is available here. RCHS office staff can provide proof of age for students who do not have another form of ID.
