Save time. Carpool with families you trust.
Use this carpool organizer to coordinate carpools for your kids with friends and neighbors. Features include: custom invitations, easy scheduling, live tracking, optimized routing, reminders, in-app chat, and more.
How it works:
Set up your kids’ carpool schedule and then invite friends and neighbors; they join with their kids and each parent signs up to drive on the days that work best for them. GoKid keeps the schedule organized in real time, so the whole carpool group can see who is driving, where the pickups and dropoffs are, and what the best driving route is.
Available worldwide, the GoKid carpool app is not a taxi service for kids. Rather, parents take turns driving their own kids and their friends' kids.
Use this family scheduling app to make your life easier when there are no school transport services or you need rides for kids to sports or after-school activities. Don’t do all the driving yourself!
Carpooling with friends and neighbors is a great way to get to and from school or after school activities while reducing your impact on the environment.

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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
Developer Response ,
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 email@example.com 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.
