What is HopSkipDrive?
HopSkipDrive started five years ago by three working moms trying to get their kids to all their busy activities.
It has now become a transportation solution for schools, families, and organizations to give kids the opportunities they deserve.
HopSkipDrive For Families
It's perfect for parents who need to get their kids to and from school, camp, lessons, and more. The company also provides booster seats for the littlest passengers,
With the app you can schedule a trip up to eight hours in advance of your preferred pickup time. If you need to book a ride for the following morning it will need to be done by 7pm the night before.
You can also schedule recurring riders for daily or weekly activities. Just set it to repeat when your book your initial ride.
HopSkipDrive For Schools
Is HopSkipDrive Safe?
All drivers must go through a 15-point certification process in order to qualify as a CareDriver.
That includes passing an FBI criminal background check, getting fingerprinted and having a good driving record. Along with passing a rigorous safety inspection on their car, and having childcare experience.
HopSkipDrive also tracks all rides in real-time. So you will always know where your child is. Drivers wear bright orange uniform shirts that make them easily identifiable, along with company flags on their car so your child knows what car to look for.
HopSkipDrive also encourages families to come up with a secret password that only the child, their parents, and the driver know. This helps prevent imposters from posing as a CareDriver.
Parents will also receive an alert when the drivers is on the way to make a pickup. They will also receive another alert once the child has been safely picked up and a third when the child is dropped off.
