Kango's Rides and Care service is available in the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles, CA.
As featured in Dow Jones Marketwatch/WSJ:
“Uber-for-kids services like Kango are growing, [...] A similar service to Uber but reserved solely for kids? Totally cool. That is what 8-year-old [Kango passenger will tell you.”
From a mom:
“All in all, the service has been a godsend for our family (two kids, two adults who work full time). We plan to use it even more as the kids grow older and their interests diverge, necessitating more parent time driving to their different activities.”

PRAISE FOR KANGO
“I chose to use Kango because it is the most convenient way to get around with a toddler. The drivers are screened and they have their own car seats which saves a lot of hassle.”
"I work full time so I thought I'd have to skip opportunities for my kids that are off site from school/after-school care...so finding out about Kango was great! My son, who is often tentative with new people and processes, is completely comfortable and enjoys the rides (and story times!) with the driver."
FROM KANGO DRIVERS AND SITTERS:
"I love being a part of the Kango family, especially driving the little ones ...I can interact directly with parents in the app and schedule my rides ahead of time. It's an app with a human touch."
“Having two teenage kids of my own, I drove my kids to school myself for years...I do this for Kango now and it puts a smile on my face. I'm grateful to be able to continue this very important work.”
FROM THE PRESS:
"They say it takes a village to raise a child, but an app called Kango is bringing that idiom into the 21st century [… ] Kango is going to make parents' lives much easier."
"Parents will like this app, but kids who used to get stuck waiting for a ride home will love it." --Techcrunch

Ratings and Reviews
Poor Customer Service
I used Kango for several months. When a question arose about my billing - I experienced the unprofessional side of Kango. I could not get a reply from multiples messages sent through their app. I could not get a reply from calling their phone number (it was always an answering service, never a live person). When a Kango rep FINALLY contacted me, I was promised a review and resolution. Several weeks later and I still haven’t heard back from Kango. Unprofessional. Unethical. DO NOT USE KANGO unless you don’t mind having your concerns and problems ignored. I think I’ll try one of their competitors instead.
Great service all around
Kango saved me several times at the end of the school year when I needed to get my son rides to and from school 45 minutes away. Their service is excellent, always responding to me right away and resolving any issues that came up. They really care about supporting parents. I would gladly use Kango again!
Just witnessed a Kango van take a red light behind 2 other cars taking red on 19th ave. Company claims "we put your kids safety first" but I'm not sure about that. I've witnessed so many accidents from cars running red lights, crazy that a kid friendly taxi service allows this kind of driving.
