LOS ANGELES, Calif. – As gas prices reach historical highs — up to $7/gallon in states like California — safe school transportation solution HopSkipDrive is helping HopSkipDrive CareDrivers allay fuel costs with the ‘Help at the Pump’ initiative.
Estimating that HopSkipDrive CareDrivers are spending an average of $2 more per HopSkipDrive ride than before gas prices started climbing, HopSkipDrive is offering promotions to all CareDrivers that pay $4 per ride.
HopSkipDrive SVP of Marketing Miriam Ravkin says, “As gas prices continue to impact everyday lives, HopSkipDrive is committed to providing the best possible support for HopSkipDrive CareDrivers. Anticipating and understanding the needs of the CareDriver community, HopSkipDrive knew we needed to jump in and help offset gas costs during this difficult time.”
A crucial part of HopSkipDrive’s mission of creating opportunity for all through mobility, CareDrivers must pass a 15-point certification process that includes a required five years of caregiving experience. This caregiving background ensures CareDrivers have the knowledge and skills they need to transport vulnerable populations — including children experiencing homelessness, children in foster care, children with special needs and older adults — with empathy and the utmost safety measures.
