Description

Introducing GoKid, the premier carpool solution for schools and families, designed to streamline your school runs while prioritizing safety and cost-efficiency. Awarded "App of the Day" and trusted by thousands of families to arrange over 1.5 million carpool trips, GoKid stands out as a reliable solution for organizing your children’s school transportation.

Unlike ride-sharing services aimed at children, GoKid empowers parents to form a carpool network with friends and family, ensuring a trusted circle for your child’s travel needs. Our innovative family account feature simplifies managing your household’s carpool schedules, while our route optimization guarantees timely arrivals. We also work with schools - if your school participates, you can find other parents on a map.

Why GoKid?
Built on Trust: A community-driven approach where parents share the responsibility of driving, fostering a trusted environment for your children's commutes.
Time & Cost Saving: Share driving duties with fellow parents, reducing both the financial burden of commuting and time spent behind the wheel.

Advanced Planning Tools: From shared calendars and dedicated child accounts to daily schedule planning, GoKid equips you with everything you need for seamless carpool coordination.
Enhanced Safety Features: Benefit from GPS navigation, timely driving reminders, real-time location tracking, and direct messaging within the app. Our co-parenting support further eases scheduling complexities.

Getting Started is Simple: Create your account, add your child, set the date and times for the carpool and and invite trusted families to join your carpool. After other families acccept, our software plots the route, alerts the volunteer driver, and sends real-time notifications for pickups and drop-offs.
Available across the US and Canada, GoKid is the ideal companion for families without access to school transport or needing a reliable option for school and extracurricular travels. Helps declutter daily schedules and reduce the stress and time driving!

GoKid Pro: Elevate your experience with additional perks such as location tracking, custom alerts, comprehensive carpool histories, and in-app messaging.

Pretty Good... still some kinks

I’ve been using this app for 4 months now. It works pretty well and I’d recommend it to others. I’m giving it a 4 for a few reasons... it logs you out of the app and then you don’t get reminder notifications. The organizer of a carpool cannot remove one child who no longer participates; you have to either talk the uninterested/non-participating parent to take the time to log in and do it, or you have to delete the entire carpool and start all over because of that one child. It just shouldn’t be that way. Set up is also a bit cumbersome adding to the headache. Would be great if we could see where our drivers are, but I believe that functionality is forthcoming. All in all, it does its job. I just think there’s quite a bit of room for improvement. Considering there aren’t many carpool apps for children, GoKid has the opportunity to seriously corner the market and get way ahead if they will just make improvements like the ones I listed above.

Developer Response ,

Thanks so much for this review. Since our relaunch in August 2020 we've included some of your suggestions: 1) you are no longer automatically logged out of the app and so you will receive notifications! 2) live tracking of vehicles is now available as a premium feature. 3) changing a child's participation needs to be done by the participating family. But we will discuss your suggested changes with other families. Hope you will give Gokid another try! :) thanks so much and happy carpooling!

Great start - needs more options

Just started using this app which I thing is a great organization tool however it would be helpful to add an option in the profile for how many kids can fit in our car. We have some people only able to take three kids while others can fit more. I’d also like to see the option of choosing the carpools myself instead of automatically being added. Just some feedback! Great start!

Developer Response ,

Thanks for that great feedback! Good news: We are planning to add the available seat numbers in the future. Regarding joining carpools - you should only be added to a carpool if you accept the invitation, it should never automatically add you. Do kindly get in touch with us at support@gokid.mobi if somehow this is not functioning correctly for you.

Has potential but not there now

Another mom suggested we use this to help with our 5 kid carpool. I’m not a fan this app, 4 months into use. It’s cumbersome. It provides the basic function of organizing a carpool for all to see. But even with the paid subscription (don’t pay for it! Adds nothing) - the format is a never ending scroll of days. You can’t just search for you or your child in the schedule. The buttons to select or skip a ride are easy to confuse. There’s no way to lay this out as a calendar, can only scroll. The physical appearance of the app doesn’t help with easy reference for your child’s name or patents (as the user, or the passenger, my name should be a different color).

The other 4 moms feel it’s functional enough. I suspect they don’t dislike it quite as much as I do ( I have 4 kids, and can’t quickly pull up info at work without possibly misreading it; I’m looking for easier!). I feed a google spreadsheet is much easier & dynamic enough for our purposes. I’ll keep looking for a better alternative to introduce to the carpool. For now, I’m stuck with this!

Hi there. Thanks for your feedback on what you'd like to see improved in the app. I have a few tips that might help with regards to your frustrations. Please try using the filters at the top of the screen to quickly see the carpools you're driving or that specific children of yours are in. To help distinguish yourself and your kids from others, we really recommend adding pictures of yourself and your children in your profile (just go to the profile and tap your image or your kids image), then you'll easily be able to distinguish who is who in the carpool. If you prefer a monthly calendar view, I'd like to kindly suggest you check out our desktop version (my.gokid.mobi), it might meet your particular needs better.
I hope that those tips help make the app work better for your needs - if they've helped please consider updating your review.
Don't hesitate to get in touch at support@gokid.mobi with any other questions or feedback on our app. We're a small team but always working to make GoKid better for parents and kids.
