Simplify IEP Transportation Needs

Simplify IEP Transportation Needs

Individual Education Programs (IEPs) often have transportation requirements to help children fully benefit from special education. Our Platform makes it easy for you to arrange alternative transportation on an individual basis, customized to each student's unique needs.

The HopSkipDrive Difference


Flexible &

Our flexible, dynamic driver supply makes it easy to build out new routes or edit existing ones. We ensure that you will always fill rides, even with one day’s notice.

Driver supply increases and decreases with your needs; you’ll never pay for unfilled rides or a vehicle that sits empty.


Safe & Reliable

Safety is our #1 priority, from our 15-point CareDriver certification process to our Safe Ride Support System.

We know how important consistency can be to students with special needs. Rides are guaranteed; students will see an average of only three CareDrivers in a 90-day period.


Caregivers on Wheels

CareDrivers must have 5+ years of caregiving experience — many were teachers, special education teachers and paraeducators, school administrators, social workers and more.

CareDrivers bring their experience, empathy and best practices for working with children into each ride.

Join the districts we support through safe, guaranteed,
affordable student transportation for youth with special needs.

In Their Words

Not only does HopSkipDrive help reduce the district’s overall transportation costs, but offering this service to students with specialized transportation needs shortens commute times–meaning less time in transit and more time learning. – – Leigh Cook Director of Federal Programs and Academic Compliance, Klein ISD

HopSkipDrive is not only 60% less expensive than our previous solution, but far more reliable. We had worked with HopSkipDrive for only a few weeks before we quadrupled the number of students riding with their CareDrivers, and we’ll continue to expand district ridership with them. – – Mike H.
