Who we are

HopSkipDrive’s mission is to create opportunity for all through mobility. Our safe, innovative youth transportation solution is used by over 300 school districts, charter schools, government agencies and busy families to get kids where they need to go.

With nearly 500,000 yellow buses on the road every day and 3.5 billion miles driven a year, student transportation is the largest mass transit system in the US. And while districts spend $25 billion annually on transportation, only 30% of kids get to school everyday on a school bus. Add to the equation a crippling bus driver shortage and increasing needs for individualized transportation solutions, and it is clear the current system is expensive, inefficient and ripe for disruption.

We create personalized transportation solutions from one to many, and everything in between. 

We’re a company with heart

Our partnerships with school districts, child welfare agencies and nonprofits ensure equitable educational access for our most vulnerable populations, including youth in foster care, youth experiencing homelessness, and youth with special needs. 

We understand that the difference between struggle and success can sometimes be as simple as the ability to show up, which is why we’re on a mission to use innovative technology, coupled with operational expertise and new thinking to help kids reach their full potential by providing a safe, dependable way to get them where they are going. 

We’re an awesome place to work

Our company culture has been well-recognized — HopSkipDrive has been named to Best Places to Work lists from Built in LA, Comparably, Inc. and the Los Angeles Business Journal. Comparably also named us to the Best Company for Professional Development, Best CEO and Best CEOs for Women lists. 

We’re growing rapidly

Founded by three moms as a solution to their own transportation challenges, we now serve nine states and 16 markets across the country and continue to expand at a rapid pace, twice making the Inc. 5000 and Deloitte 500 Fast-Growing Technology lists. Backed by top-tier venture capital firms, HopSkipDrive has raised $70M in funding to date.

An Insider's view of HopSkipDrive

What’s the vibe like in the office?

HopSkipDrive has the best office vibe I’ve experienced, and that’s all thanks to my coworkers. My favorite moments of the day are the small, unexpected conversations I get to have– in the kitchen grabbing coffee, in the elevator, or passing in the hall. I look forward to coming into work because of them. Well, them and our many good office dogs

Emily Durrett

Office Administrator

What are some things you learned at the company?

I learned to identify my strengths and interests in a work environment. Rather than chasing promotions, I learned to look for the work I I’d like to do. Startups make this easier because there are so many opportunities to move, change, and grow.

Mira Hayashi

CX Training Manager

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We make it a priority at HopSkipDrive to foster a trusting and collaborative culture which improves and enhances our ideas and strategies on a daily basis. This has allowed us to successfully bring to market a service that challenges the status quo as it relates to connecting access to transportation with educational outcomes.

Toby McGraw

How does the company support your career growth?

I look forward to going in to work, a work environment that pushes me to improve, that gives me the support and structure to grow into a better thinker, braver woman, all the while still letting me be the quirky clown that I am.
