Small Group Transportation Solutions

Small Group Transportation Solutions

Sometimes a school bus isn’t the most efficient and cost-effective form of transportation for small groups. That’s where HopSkipDrive can supplement traditional school transportation.

If a bus has 12 students or less on it, HopSkipDrive can be a more cost-effective, environmentally-friendly alternative. And, given driver shortages, you can also replace underutilized routes with HopSkipDrive rides.

Arrange alternative school transportation for small groups, whether it's a few children attending a magnet program, students in attending their school of choice, or a smaller sports team.

The HopSkipDrive network of CareDrivers will be there — education rides are always guaranteed.

  • School of Choice
  • Small sports team
