Kid CarPool allows multiple families to share the ride cost and even request to have the same driver every day.
- A SAFE Ride: Drivers are trained in car seat installation and fully vetted.
- Consistent Drivers: Families can pay a little extra to have the same driver every day.
- Share the Cost:The cost of Kid CarPool rides can be shared among riding families.
- The RIGHT Car Seat(s), Properly Installed: Up to 4 car seats are available in every vehicle. Caregivers are responsible for securing the children in the car seat.
SCHOOL TRIP PRICE ESTIMATE
The price estimate is for the route described below and includes taxes, fees, and gratuities, but does not include traffic or tolls if any.
OTHER (IMPORTANT) STUFFNo Food or Uncrated Pets. Period.
Many of our passengers have severe food and dander allergies and an emergency detour to a hospital because of an allergic reaction is not fair to anyone. NO EXCEPTIONS. Seriously. None.
We have spent a lot of time and money training and vetting your Kid Car driver so please don’t try to cut some sort of side deal with them. We will find out and we will charge you for the offending rides. Besides, nobody likes a cheater.
FAQWhy isn’t there a ‘fixed’ price per trip/ school year?
>95% trips finish within minutes of the ‘average’ arrival/ drop off time. While there will be outliers (UN Week, Hurricane Sandy, etc.), the overwhelming majority of your rides will be within a couple of dollars of one another.
We suggest asking your child’s school for the names of other families to add to your carpool.
You can always send your driver’s information (name, picture, license plate number) via text to your child’s school or program. In the meantime, your driver will be looking for your child.
NYPD frowns on unaccompanied vehicles. If you have a special arrangement at a school, explain it to the driver so that they avoid getting a ticket. If the driver gets a ticket despite this ‘special’ arrangement, expect to see the ticket in your next bill.
