With school back in session, carpooling can be a lifesaver, and it’s never been easier thanks to Kango, an app-based ridesharing service for preschool to high school–age kids in Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley. Whether your child needs a ride to school every day or to get to soccer practice after school on Mondays, Kango’s prescreened drivers will get your kids where they need to go.
Parents can keep tabs on their little ones in transit through the Kango app, which allows you to track the location of the driver, send them a message, or call them directly. With safety as the No. 1 priority, all drivers must pass the Kango Safety Check, which includes a background and DMV check, fingerprinting, and vehicle inspection, as well as an in-person training session. Kango also offers supportive services such as childcare, grocery delivery, and tutoring. Rides from $24; kangoapp.co
