Takes kids to school safe and sound
The New York startup GoKid makes life easier for parents around the world. GoKid runs a carpool platform for driving children to school, sports and other after-school activities safely and on time. Reliability and trust are especially important when it comes to transporting children. GoKid helps families, friends and neighbors organize carpools. Routes are optimized and drivers must have their own children in the car. The app lets parents track when children are picked up, what route the driver is taking and when they arrive at school or practice.
GoKid has already organized over 100,000 trips. Parents save time and money and help protect the environment, and the carpools reduce rush hour traffic. Using GoKid to take children to school costs communities around 90% less than school buses.
GoKid could be added to mobility services such as ioki and CleverShuttle, making them even more appealing. DB has held an interest in GoKid since May 2018 through Deutsche Bahn Digital Ventures GmbH.
The startup won 2018 the transportation category of the accelerator pitch event at the renowned South by Southwest (SXSW) festival and was 2016 one of twelve startups in the Techstar Mobility Class.
The free app is available for iOS and Android and can be downloaded at www.gokid.mobi.
