If you have ever needed to be in two places at once as a working parent, you know the added stress that transportation can have on your family. Imagine your daughter needs to be at soccer practice at the same time you need to be at a work meeting, many parents face limitations like this every day and are forced to make tough choices for their family.
Enter: Kango, the award-winning rideshare and childcare app-based service, that just announced its expansion to Phoenix, Arizona. The Kango app offers safe, trusted rides for busy families. When parents have work commitments or scheduling conflicts, a Kango driver can be scheduled to take kids to school, sports practice, the zoo, extracurricular activities, playdates and more. Parents refer to the service, which is also available in cities across California, as “nannies on wheels.” Families all across the country are using trusted services like Kango to help their loved ones do more.
From a customer perspective, Kango is the most comprehensive and safe rideshare for kids service available on the market today. It is the only rideshare insured to drive children of all ages, the only such service to offer on-demand same-day rides with no cutoff time for booking, and the only kids’ ridesharing provider to also offer childcare without a time limit. Separately from rides, parents can book standalone childcare, a benefit of the app that is growing in popularity.
Kango believes first and foremost that every family deserves a transportation solution that’s trusted, reliable, and safe. As part of Kango’s dedication to these values, the company has a rigorous screening and in-person interview process for all drivers and childcare providers; in addition to background checks and fingerprinting, the process includes DMV record checks, employer reference checks, 19-point vehicle inspections, and in-person trainings. All drivers and caregivers must also have three or more years of childcare experience, and many drivers are other moms themselves. Further, every Phoenix-based driver and childcare provider must have an active Arizona Fingerprint Clearance Card, giving local parents an additional layer of security.
Since arriving in the Phoenix area in early January, Kango services many local neighborhoods including West Phoenix, North Phoenix, Scottsdale, North Scottsdale, Mesa, Tempe, Gilbert, Chandler, Peoria, Cave Creek, West Valley, Goodyear, Tolleson, Litchfield, Avondale, and Buckeye. Interested parents can learn more by visiting the Kango website and downloading from the App Store or the Google Play Store, and interested potential drivers can apply through the online application.
