    Who we are

    HopSkipDrive’s mission is to create opportunity for all through mobility.
    Our safe, innovative youth transportation solution is used by schools, government agencies and busy families to get kids where they need to go.

    We’re a company with heart

    Our partnerships with agencies, nonprofits and schools ensure educational access for some of our most vulnerable populations, including youth in foster care, youth experiencing homelessness, and youth with special needs. We understand that transportation can mean the difference between struggle and success, and our solution helps kids reach their full potential by arranging safe, dependable transportation.

    We’re an awesome place to work

    Our company culture has been well-recognized — HopSkipDrive has been named to Best Places to Work lists from Built in LA, Comparably, Inc. and the Los Angeles Business Journal. Comparably also named us to the Best Company for Professional Development, Best CEO and Best CEOs for Women lists.

    We’re growing rapidly

    Founded by three moms as a solution to their own transportation challenges, we now serve nine states and 16 markets across the country and continue to expand at a rapid pace, twice making the Inc. 5000 and Deloitte 500 Fast-Growing Technology lists. Backed by top-tier venture capital firms, HopSkipDrive has raised $70M in funding to date.
