Save time. Carpool with families you trust.
GoKid is a complete carpool tool for schools, teams, and active families, helping parents to carpool with families they know and trust.
With GoKid, kids carpooling is simple. The app includes automated invitations, schedules, notifications, route optimization, maps, reminders, and family profiles. No more long chains of emails and texts – simplify your life by having all your carpool info in one place. Easily set up carpools for your kids with friends, families and neighbors who you know and trust.
How it works:
Parents set up kids’ carpool schedules and then invite other trusted families to share the rides. GoKid puts all the information in one place for the parents—who is driving, which kids are coming, event location, time and date, and drop-off and pickup locations.
Our kids transportation app also keeps you on track with reminders when it’s your turn to drive and notifications of schedule changes.
The GoKid kids carpooling app is a great solution for parents when there are no school transport services. Use it to carpool to school and after school activities, carpool to sports activities, carpool to parties, and more! No school van or bus? No problem.
Our goal is to make moms’ and dads’ lives easier by providing a way to share rides to school when there is no school van or school transportation services. Carpooling with friends and neighbors is a great way to get to and from school or after school activities.
In addition to the standard features that are available to all users, there is also the GoKid Pro subscription service that comes with iOS calendar integration, enhanced notification options, and many more powerful features planned for future updates of the application.

Ratings and Reviews
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.
Pretty good...could optimize with a few upgrades
I will say that the customer service for this app is great. There was a glitch when I first downloaded it and the folks at the app worked hard to fix it and stayed in constant contact.
So we use this for carpool to and from school. It would be nice if the app could allow a driver to indicate the number of spaces in the car so that you would know if you were at capacity.
Additionally, if there were a way to allow the drivers to alter the pickup times that would be helpful. As it stands, only the administrator can make those changes so one person has to be responsible for changes.
Outside of this, I have been happy with the app and its use thus far,
Cost and functionality
Great app but it is way too expensive to use the full functionality. It is the same cost as teamsnap- which does way more and has a functional web site.
The free version could at least give push notifications and show messages within the app even if it didn’t send texts or emails.
Good concept but too expensive. If I have to have a group text as well as the app then it makes it almost not worth it.
