Top 5 Reasons to Drive for HopSkipDrive in Ventura

HopSkipDrive provides safe, reliable transportation to students and seniors in many different areas, including Ventura, California. If you have caregiving experience and are looking for part-time work in Ventura County, then driving with HopSkipDrive might be a great choice. 

Here are five benefits to becoming a CareDriver with HopSkipDrive in Ventura:

Drive kids and make up to $32 an hour 

Driving kids is important work, and HopSkipDrive knows it. CareDrivers earn more on HopSkipDrive than on many other platforms in Ventura County. In fact, we pay up to $32 an hour, plus incentivized bonuses. Compare that to Uber, which pays an average of $13 to $17 an hour, according to many drivers across the country

Plus, many of our CareDrivers consider their driving jobs in Ventura meaningful work. Yes, they get compensated, but they also help students and seniors get where they need to go. CareDrivers’ work matters, and it makes them feel good. 

“The people that I meet every day inspire me. I’m grateful to be able to get paid for giving this service,” said a CareDriver. 

Supplement your retirement savings or traditional income 

Many CareDrivers begin driving for HopSkipDrive because they’re looking to earn some extra cash. These CareDrivers are sometimes retired care providers or work part-time in other caregiving industries. 

From Oxnard to Moorpark, our team of Ventura CareDrivers are able to supplement their income while continuing their work as caregivers. 

Many retired caregivers choose to drive for HopSkipDrive because the money is good, and the hours are flexible. They’re able to make extra money but are still able to enjoy their leisure time. 

“The flexibility of the job gives me the opportunity to do the other things I enjoy doing,” said one CareDriver. 

Set your own schedule, and decide where in Ventura you’re willing to go

Ventura CareDrivers enjoy complete control of their driving schedule. Our CareDrivers determine when they’re willing to work, and at what times. Ventura-based drivers with other responsibilities simply select the weeks, days, and even hours that work for them. Plus, CareDrivers can change their availability at any time. 

Finally, CareDrivers choose what routes and rides they claim. If driving to Camarillo or Thousand Oaks isn’t your cup of tea, you’ll never have to drive there. 

This flexibility is a major perk for many part-time CareDrivers, many of whom only work on certain days, at given times or in certain areas.

Team up with awe-inspiring CareDrivers right in Ventura County

Make a real difference in your Ventura community
