● Have a Kango driver take you and your toddler to preschool before you go to work
● Get a sitter to bring the kids home from school and get them started on homework
● And more!

With Kango, book rides and babysitting from pre-screened drivers and sitters. All Kango drivers and sitters have at least 3 years of childcare experience, and have passed our comprehensive screening process (including fingerprinting, background checks and DMV checks) and training to ensure they can provide the best, safest service possible. You can even request your family's favorite drivers, or interview them in advance.

Kango serves CA - SF Bay Area, LA, Modesto/Stockton, Orange County, and San Diego - and Arizona (Phoenix and Tucson).


Kango gives you access to a trustworthy selection of pre-screened drivers and sitters. All you need to do is:

1. Schedule a ride, childcare or both
Kango supports one-time or recurring requests, and provides boosters or car seats as needed. Booking in advance is recommended. Kango is the only service that accepts same-day requests as well.

2. See who can help
We’ll reach out to our pool of caregivers in your area and find the best person to fulfill your request. You can request your preferred driver(s) or meet one ahead of time.

3. Stay in touch every step of the way
Enjoy real-time updates from your driver or sitter or track their location in the app. Or call them directly.

Start using Kango today. When you’re ready to book a Kango driver or sitter, sign up and request what you need. Prices vary according to the type and duration of services required.

Filled out all of my information only to find out the app doesnt allow users in my area to book a driver but rather arrange a carpool with people in my contacts/groups that have ZERO people in them to begin with. Why not just ask for a zipcode prior to the signup portion or state what areas have access to specified app features. I'm looking for a ride not to become a dispatcher of sorts. Geesh!

The concept sounds amazing, however the app crashes on my Google Pixel 3XL every time I try to add a pick up location, so it's useless. I've deleted the app and reinstalled it and I'm still having the issue. Bummer.

My experience has been great so far. I have been using Kango for 2 years now. I have used Zum and HopSkipDrive in the past prior to Kango, but I had best experience with Kango in terms of availability of drivers and flexibility on short notice. They also share updates continuously so you are aware of what is going on. Thanks Kango!
