What is HopSkipDrive and why should I trust it with my kids or students?

HopSkipDrive is a ride service to get kids (age 6+) where they need to go when their parents can't. It was created by three moms who understand the stress of driving kids to all of their activities, and the safety concerns parents have putting their children in someone else's car.  It's a simple, convenient, and reliable solution borne out of necessity and fueled by care for the kids we carry.

As parents, we worry about the safety of all children on our rides. That's why we've built stringent safety measures into everything we do at HopSkipDrive. All CareDrivers must pass a highly selective 15-point certification process before they can drive your students.

What is Trustline?

Trustline is California's registry of childcare providers who have passed a rigorous background screening. It is the only background check authorized by state law to use three databases that the general public, including private investigators and private background check companies, cannot access. All caregivers listed with Trustline have been cleared through the California Department of Justice, Child Abuse Central Index of California, and FBI.
