Welcome to a simpler way to get them there

HopSkipDrive is a ride service for kids designed to help you take some of the stress out of your family's busy schedule. It was created by three moms who understand the struggle of getting kids around town safely.

We get it

We wouldn't trust our kids with just anyone, and neither should you. That's why we developed a solution that makes scheduling rides with experienced caregivers easy and convenient, with built-in stringent safety features to give you real peace of mind. We fingerprint every CareDriver, monitor every ride in real time, and you can follow along on your app too.


Using HopSkipDrive is easy


Schedule a ride. Schedule rides right from the app or the website. Include specific location information, like school sign-out procedures, pick-up lines, and parking tips. Rides must be booked 8 hours before pick up if your ride is after 10am. If before 10am, make sure to book by 7pm the night before. Rides are available 7 days a week.


Meet your driver. When you set up your ride, you will be matched with a CareDriver. You will see their profile, picture and car information. Share this information with your child so they know who to expect. Also, if necessary, please provide your driver's information for any required sign-out authorizations. 


Track your ride. Download the HopSkipDrive app to easily schedule rides, get real-time updates, and track the progress of your child's ride, from the moment your CareDriver leaves to pick them up, to the moment they're dropped off safely at their destination.  Download the free app now iOS | Android.


For anyone who needs a little extra care

Have a parent or relative who doesn’t drive? HopSkipDrive is a great alternative. When they ride with a CareDriver, you’ll have peace of mind knowing they’ll get the extra attention they need, whether they’re heading to an appointment or just need a ride to lunch with friends. Learn More

Designed by safety-obsessed moms

In everything we do, we put safety first — from the way we rigorously screen our drivers to our in-ride safety features and our live customer support. After all, our kids use HopSkipDrive too. All CareDrivers must pass our mom-approved, selective 15-point certification process, which includes extensive background checks, fingerprinting, requiring drivers to be members of the TrustLine registry, ongoing DMV checks, ride-alongs, reference checks, driver training, and meeting every single driver in person. Your child also has their own personalized code word their driver will confirm with them for added security. We have insurance specifically designed for transporting children, and have partnered with Zendrive, a software that monitors driving behavior and helps us ensure that drivers are not texting or talking while your child is in the car. We look out for your kids the same way we take care of ours.


CareDrivers pass the picky mom test

All of our CareDrivers must pass through our 15-point certification process. They all have a minimum of 5 years of childcare experience. They are moms, teachers, nannies, babysitters, nurses and more. Our drivers are required to be members of the TrustLine registry, the gold standard for background checks for childcare providers in the state of California. When your kids ride with HopSkipDrive, you can rest assured they are in expert hands.
