Who we are

HopSkipDrive is a mission-driven, venture-backed company transforming the way kids access opportunity.   We were founded by 3 working moms who have 8 kids among them and developed HopSkipDrive as a solution to their own problems getting kids where they needed to go.  We’ve now helped more than half a million kids travel more than 3.5 million miles. Whether we’re helping schools simplify their growing alternative transportation needs, ensuring foster kids have the stability of staying at their school of origin, or families manage the complexity of carpools and afterschool activities, we have a clear purpose for all that we do — helping kids get to their full potential.

HopSkipDrive has investment and involvement from nearly every major LA investor including Upfront Ventures, Greycroft and Pritzker, with more than $20M in funding.  We are based in downtown LA. Our mission, our enormous market potential, our team and the technology challenges we are solving make HopSkipDrive one of LA’s hottest startups and an all-around awesome place to work.
