About this app

HopSkipDrive is the most caring, tech-enabled ride service for kids ages 6+. Today’s busy families depend on HopSkipDrive to get their children everywhere they need to go 7 days a week. Rides are provided by trusted CareDrivers who have at least 5 years of caregiving experience and pass a rigorous 15-point certification process––including fingerprinting, background checks, DMV checks, car inspections, in-person interviews and more.

HopSkipDrive has driven over 2.5 million safe miles––including 450,000 trips to school––and also drives kids to after school activities, dance and music lessons, athletic practices, enrichment classes, tutoring, dental appointments, and more.

HopSkipDrive is easy to use. Book a single ride, repeating rides, multi-stop rides, and carpools in the app or on the website. CareDrivers must provide a secret passcode you select and date of birth for added security. Leave location-specific notes about pickup, like if your child needs to be signed out of school, or walked into their karate class. After you book, you’ll receive a photo and bio of your CareDriver so you and your child know exactly who will be picking them up.

You can track your child’s ride in real time with on the HopSkipDrive app. HopSkipDrive will send you text notifications, like when the CareDriver is on their way, and when your child has been picked up and dropped off safely.

Our U.S.-based Safe Rides Support team monitors every HopSkipDrive ride in real time, giving parents and caregivers greater peace of mind. Customer support is just a click away.

HopSkipDrive is currently available across Southern California––Ventura County, Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego––in the San Francisco Bay Area, Colorado and is coming to your city soon.

The inability to edit locations, or delete to resubmit them, before booking a ride to improve accuracy is an oversight that should be fixed. I do not know that I can trust the location service when the app edited the location, not me. I would fix it in the notes or nickname, but the app does not allow it.

I'm a working single mom and this is a super convenient and one of the easiest apps to use. I don't have to think twice on how I would get my kids to school when I work morning shifts .
