How To Request A Ride Or Sitter

  1. Open the app and go to the Kango home screen
    Tap the icon that corresponds to what you need:
    Drivers for rides
    Sitters for childcare

  2. Fill out the Quick Request Form
    Select one more more children, add location details and any special needs

  3. Post your Request
    Your request will go out to the pre-screened Drivers and Sitters in your area. If you have expressed a preference for one or more specific drivers or sitters, your request will be posted to them, first. If a driver or sitter is available and accepts your request, you will receive a notification in the app. You will then be able to message them directly via the app, if desired.
