HopSkipDrive: Safe and Dependable Ride Service + Giveaway!

This is a sponsored post. #MultiMom

As parents, we are always busy picking up and dropping off our children whether it be to and from school or after school activities. Can you relate? Do you ever wish there were two of you so you can be at two or three places at once? Are there several times you had to leave work early, hire a babysitter, or miss out on activities because of transportation? Introducing safe and dependable ride service from HopSkipDrive. The company was created by three working moms who understand the challenges families face every day. Among the three co-founders, they have eight kids who go to five different schools and participate in 17 extracurricular activities - Wow!

With the help of HopSkipDrive, families can schedule single rides or carpooling as soon as the next day if booked by 7:00 PM the night before, for the whole week, or even for the entire school year. I had some reservations myself and have yet to try the service, but after learning that all the drivers go through extensive background checks, fingerprinting, regular DMV checks, and they have childcare experience, I feel better about the situation.
 

SAFETY MEASURES

HopSkipDrive CareDrivers are “caregivers on wheels” giving parents the confidence that their kids are being transported safely and securely every minute of every ride. All CareDrivers must be 23 years old or older, have at least five years of childcare experience and must pass a highly selective 15-point certification process that includes fingerprinting, extensive background checks, vehicle safety inspections by a licensed mechanic, ongoing DMV checks, reference checks, driver orientation, an in-person meeting and membership on the TrustLine registry, the gold standard in background checks for childcare providers in California. Here is more helpful information:  

  • HopSkipDrive was the first ride service to require all drivers to be fingerprinted.

  • All CareDrivers have at least five years of childcare experience and a track record of success in working with kids – they are moms, teachers, and nurses that the founders would trust with their own children.

  • HopSkipDrive puts parents in control with notifications at pickup and drop off and personalized code words given to their child at pickup.

  • HopSkipDrive also monitors driver behavior and is the only ride service with a live customer service team committed to getting kids to their destination safely and on time.

Moms and Dads are masters of multitasking juggling homework, science projects, soccer practice, making dinner, and reading with their children every night. We try to do it all, but sometimes it is not enough. Don’t we all wish there was a MultiMom App like in that video that brings multiple versions of us from a parallel universe so we can be the professional, the doctor, the homework helper, the PTA secretary, the accountant, and more all at the same time?

 

SWEEPSTAKES!

To celebrate all the multitasking moms (and dads) out there, HopSkipDrive is running a sweepstakes during the month of February where parents can win some fun prizes. PRIZES: one month of free HopSkipDrive rides (up to $500 in rides), a One Potato box (3 meals, any size family) to make family dinner easy, and three free doctor house calls from Heal.

HopSkipDrive offers a safe and dependable ride service that helps parents get their kids where they need to go when they're not able to do so themselves. You can even schedule as soon as the next day as long as reserve by 7 PM the night before. Save money with the carpooling option and organize rides with other families. At times, it is a more affordable option than hiring a babysitter to fill transportation needs. HopSkipDrive is currently available in Los Angeles, Orange County and the San Francisco Bay Area.
