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

Great alternative to driving Lyft & Uber
I’ve very much enjoyed working for Kango as a ride share driver! Since it’s not an on-demand service (unlike Lyft) you know your schedule ahead of time & sometimes have breaks between scheduled rides, so the pace can be more relaxed. The fares are higher too. Plus the passengers are all sweet kids, many of whom you get to know over time (and whose parents request you to be their driver going forward). Also the flexibility is second to none. I have five part time jobs and doing Kango has been a great fit for me because some weeks I work every day, but then when I have a busy week with my other work or go out of town, there’s no obligation. Highly recommended for fellow gig-lifers!
Kango has been able to find us a driver even in the most last minute requests. I feel as if our driver has our children’s best interest in mind. She never leaves them alone taking that extra step to make sure our little guys are safe and secure. Our children speak highly of her. I don’t want to leave out that they are never late and will bend over backward to get another driver if there are any problems. We have been using them now for 2 years. I would definitely recommend the Kango service to any parent.
Amazing service helping Quest Therapeutic Camp families transporting special needs children.
Because of Quest’s unique therapy program , parents from all over the Bay area sign their kids up but need transportation. Kango did an amazing job connecting parents with a ride service. Professional, great communications and customer service and best of all, I could count on Kango instead of me dealing with all the crises of previous years. We hope to have a ling lasting relationship. Bob Field PhD, licensed psychologist PSY5705,director
