Do I need to drive my guests to or from school?

Generally, no. Homestays are typically expected to be located within walking distance of a transit stop and a reasonable distance from a student's school.

We do suggest that you help your guests become familiar with the transit system near your home when they first arrive, and walk with them to the nearest transit stop on their first day. We also suggest that you also obtain some transit route guides from your local transit agency to give to your students.
