Rides and Care for Kids (500 Startups Batch 9)
Kango is a unique, best-in-class ridesharing service for kids, which enables parents and schools to book safe rides and childcare for children of any age - from preschool to high school. We have an underlying carpool community of 30,000 registered parents and over 12,000 school and neighborhood groups nationwide. Named "Best Uber for Kids" by San Francisco Magazine in 2017 and 2018.
It's a subscription and transaction fee-based model where parents pay to gain access to pre-screened Kango Drivers and Sitters, in addition to paying for each completed ride or sitter session.
Kango is the only TNC carrier (Transportation Network Company) that is insured to transport kids under 5, and provides same-day rides, in addition to prescheduled bookings. Kango is also the only kids? transportation carrier that also has a free carpool feature promoted by schools and camps.
Kango is partnered with Chrysler (FCA) for the use of plug-in Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans.
