GoKid provides schools, teams and active families with a powerful tool to share and manage day-to-day carpooling schedules. The app includes optimized routing functionality, in-app texting, calendar syncing, and automatic alerts.
In the US more than 50,000 schools are without a bus system. As a result, more than 32 million schoolchildren need to be driven to school every day by their parents, causing traffic, emissions and hundreds of hours of lost productivity. Especially in single-parent and working-parent households, families are struggling to drive their kids to and from school as it often interferes with parents’ own work schedules. Attending after-school activities most often depends on parents being able to drive their kids to and from those activities; many low income families, especially in rural areas, are not able to have their kids attend after-school activities, but even for middle class families the constant need for driving remains a challenge.
We enable families to coordinate carpooling with each other like never before and therefore save time and money as well as natural resources—simply a win for everyone, first and foremost for the kids.
