New Ride Service Program for Students Available

Thank you to our families who submitted the HopSkipDrive transportation survey. We often hear how wonderful it would be if UCLA Lab School had a bus service. We can’t offer that yet, but HopSkipDive has a wonderful ride service program and offers both carpools and single rides for families.

Interested in a carpool? If so, click here to input your transportation needs. HopSkipDrive will find carpool matches, and CareDrivers will do the driving.

HopSkipDrive is a safe, dependable ride service built specifically for kids. CareDrivers have 5+ years of child care experience and must pass a selective 15-pt certification process, including:

  • In-person interviews
  • Extensive background checks and fingerprinting
  • Ongoing DMV monitoring
  • Membership on the TrustLine Registry, the gold standard for childcare providers in California

You can track your child’s ride live via the HopSkipDrive app. The company monitors rides in real time, and customer support is available by phone or email. Each UCLA Lab School family can receive their first ride FREE (up to $20) when they use the promo code UCLALAB.

Interested? Sign up here by September 30.
