Once certified as a CareDriver, you can choose which rides you want to take. You'll be driving children and teens from point A to point B, all from the comfort of your own car. HopSkipDrive’s mission to create opportunity for all through mobility helps kids reach their full potential by providing a safe, dependable way to get them where they need to be.

Set your own schedule

Take on as much or as little work as you want - it's perfect as a part-time gig. Choose the rides in your area that best fit your own schedule. Get paid for rides you complete, during the hours that work for you.

Earn up to $50/ride*

New CareDrivers can earn up to $50/ride* during HopSkipDrive’s Hello and Welcome Guarantee, which guarantees that CareDrivers will earn $500 for 10 completed rides within the first 14 days immediately following activation. 

After the initial promotion period is over, earnings can vary based on a variety of factors including the city, how busy it is, and more. CareDrivers can earn, on average, over $35 per trip while creating their own schedule, completing on average, 7-8 trips a week on the platform.
