Free HopSkipDrive rides to and from school

With school back in session this week, Porter Ranch and other families affected by the Aliso Canyon gas leak and relocations are struggling to get back to a normal routine. A temporary home, a new school, and schedules that may not fit with busing provided are a recipe for added stress.

HopSkipDrive is here to help! If your home has been relocated and the SoCalGas reimbursement program does not cover your rides to or from school, HopSkipDrive will reimburse the cost of those rides

A Safe, Reliable, Convenient Alternative
HopSkipDrive is a ride service for kids age 7+ designed to help you get your children where they need to go safely and reliably. All HopSkipDrive CareDrivers have at least five years of care-giving experience, go through a 15-point certification process, including fingerprinting, and can even walk your child in or sign them out, as needed.

How it Works

  1. Sign up - Set up an account and purchase ride credits at Contact SoCalGas to determine your eligibility to be reimbursed by SoCalGas. If SoCalGas informs you that it will not cover your HopSkipDrive rides, please see our FAQs for information about how to get reimbursed by HopSkipDrive.

  2. Schedule rides – Set up your rides at least 8 hours in advance. Once your ride is matched to a CareDriver, you will receive a picture and profile you can show to your child.

  3. Enjoy peace of mind – Your HopSkipDrive CareDriver will get your child there safely and reliably. You will receive notifications when your child is picked up and dropped off, you can track the ride in progress through the app, and we monitor every ride in real time, as well.

As a company founded by parents, we can only imagine how stressful this situation is for you.  We hope that in some small way, we can make this difficult time a little bit easier.
