HopSkipDrive supports parents with a reliable, trusted transportation solution for their kids that’s cheaper than a costly nanny and safer than other alternatives. HopSkipDrive requires rigorous driver certification and provides real-time ride-tracking and live support for every ride to reassure parents that their kids will get where they need to go, safely.
