Safe rides and childcare for kids, from preschool to high school. Kango - for families going places!

Kango helps you get your kids (from preschool to high school) where they need to go:
● Book a driver to take your daughter to soccer practice while you are on a business trip
● Set up a carpool to take your son and his three friends to band practice every Thursday
● Have a Kango driver take you and your toddler to preschool before you go to work
● Get a sitter to bring the kids home from school and get them started on homework
● And more!

Currently available in the San Francisco Bay Area, Kango lets you book rides and babysitting from pre-screened drivers and sitters. All Kango drivers and sitters have at least 3 years of childcare experience, and have passed our comprehensive screening process (including fingerprinting, background checks and DMV checks) and training to ensure they can provide the best, safest service possible.

As featured in Dow Jones Marketwatch/WSJ:
“Uber-but-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 the their different activities.”
~Claudia A.



Kango gives you access to an incredible selection of pre-screened drivers and sitters. All you need to do is:

1. Schedule a ride, childcare or both.
Kango supports one-time or ongoing requests and can even supply boosters or forward-facing car seats if needed.

2. See who can help
We’ll reach out to our pool of background-checked, fingerprinted caregivers in your area and find the best person to fulfill your request.

3. Stay in touch every step of the way
Enjoy real-time updates from your driver or sitter or track their location in the app. Or call them directly.

You can also join neighborhood and school groups to collaborate and chat with other nearby parents.

“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 finding out about Kango was great! And my son, who is often tentative with new people and processes, is completely comfortable and even enjoys the rides (and story times!) with the driver."

"I'm sad that Shuddle closed, but I'm happy to have found Kango" ~ Nina

"I love being a part of the Kango family, especially driving the little ones around...I can interact directly with the parent within the app and can 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.”

"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."
--Business Insider

"Parents will like this app, but kids who used to get stuck waiting for a ride home will love it." --Techcrunch
