Have you heard of Kango? Kango is a SF-based children’s rideshare app, is announcing a partnership with Chrysler. This is the first time a major automotive brand is entering the kids’ rideshare space, essentially validating it as safe and trustworthy. The Chrysler Pacifica is a safe and green car, and Kango drivers are all background checked, fingerprinted, and trained in child care.
In this first-of-a-kind partnership between a family rideshare service and an automaker in the U.S, the Chrysler brand will make a fleet of Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans available to eligible Kango drivers for an affordable lease, to promote safety, environmental stewardship, and provide a best-in-class ride.
Did you just ask why would you need a ridesharing program for your kid? How about doing things like orthodontist checks? Charlie has to go once a month just to have the bands replaced. For parents that work, it would be great to have a rideshare program that will pick them up and drop them off at the doctor’s office while you drive there from work.
Kango and Chrysler brand are providing families with top of the line safety, technology, comfort, and service for the benefit and enjoyment of Kango’s regular customers. Kango’s drivers and caregivers all have previous childcare experience. They are Trustline-certified, fingerprinted, background checked, DMV record-checked, and screened in person, leading Kango to win “Best Uber for Kids” in San Francisco magazine’s 2017 Best of San Francisco awards. In addition, Kango is the only service insured to drive children of any age, providing car seats as well as booster seats. It is also the only kids’ ridesharing service that performs both same-day and pre-scheduled rides, 7 days a week, and allows families to meet a driver or sitter beforehand if desired.
The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is America’s first-ever hybrid minivan, and along with its eco-friendly electric range and best-in-class MPG, comes equipped with 100 plus safety and security features – giving parents peace of mind. In addition to safety, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is kid-friendly, providing the largest dual touchscreens of any family car, offering built-in games and apps with the available Uconnect Theater.
The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans are also perfect for multi-family carpools – a common scenario, as Kango drivers can do multiple pickups and/or multiple drop-offs in the same ride. For example, Kango can pick up neighboring kids and bring them to school in the morning, or pick up several kids from an afterschool activity and drop them off at their respective homes.
