- On-Demand AND Advance Reservations: Use the app to schedule a car in 30 minutes, next week for a doctor's appointment, or next month for an airport transfer.
- A SAFE Ride: Drivers are trained in car seat installation and fully vetted.
- The RIGHT Car Seats, Properly Installed: Up to 4 car seats are available in every vehicle. Caregivers are responsible for securing the children in the car seat.
ALL Kid Car drivers are fully trained and vetted. If a family really likes a particular driver, they can make the driver a Preferred Driver, meaning that the driver will receive that family’s ride requests before any other driver (provided the driver is in the neighborhood). Preferred Drivers receive an automatic 20% gratuity.
OTHER (IMPORTANT) STUFFAirport Transfers
1. Please make airport reservations at least 12-24 hours in advance whenever possible.
2. Please check the 'Airport' box in the app and provide us with your airline and flight number.
3. If you are flying in, the car should be scheduled for the flight's estimated time of arrival, NOT the time you think you will be ready. We do not charge waiting time.
4. Under 'Driver Instructions,' please indicate whether you would like to be met inside the airport ($15+ parking) or curbside.
Congratulations! Kid Car provides convertible car seats that are crash-tested for children >5lbs. The driver may be able to help you install your own car seat using the lap belt (which provides an equal level of protection as the base that came with your car seat). PLEASE review our Newborn Delivery Schedule for important information.
Many of our passengers have severe food and dander allergies and an emergency detour to a hospital because of an allergic reaction is not fair to anyone. NO EXCEPTIONS. Seriously. None.
On demand rides may be cancelled within 5 minutes of making your initial request without penalty. After 5 minutes, the cancellation charge is equal to the vehicle's Minute rate.
Advance reservations must be cancelled using the app at least 1 hour prior to your scheduled pickup time if you are travelling between 8am and 11pm, at least 10 hours prior to rides scheduled before 8am, or 1 hour prior to your plane's scheduled takeoff time if you are flying into NYC.
You are responsible for any cleaning fees related to your child. If your child is prone to car sickness, please let your driver know and they will do their best to provide an even smoother ride.
We have spent a lot of time and money finding, training, and vetting your Kid Car driver so please don’t try to cut some sort of side deal with them. We will find out and we will charge you for the offending rides. Besides, nobody likes a cheater.
