The Office of the Deputy Mayor of Education (DME) has been a partner of goDCgo even before the launch of the School Services program. They were a key partner in developing and distributing the DDOT 2019 Transportation Survey that informed the creation of the School Services program, and they continue to be a key partner. They actively support sustainable transportation for students and staff through their safe passage work and open transportation data platform. DME’s annual teacher hiring fairs allowed goDCgo to reach its intended audience and was instrumental in the promotion of goDCgo School Services.
