Chrysler Partners with Kango on Ride Sharing for Kids

First and foremost, the Chrysler brand stands for families. The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica has made that much clear to parents and children across the nation. However, the brand isn’t stopping there. Read on and your favorite Chrysler dealers at Jerry For The People in Hawaii will catch you up to speed on an exciting new program Chrysler is involved in to provide ride-sharing for kids.

Yes, you heard that right, ride-sharing isn’t just for those old enough for a driver’s license. In California, a group called Kango has partnered with Chrysler to provide these services and more for local children. The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivan will be utilized in the “Kango fleet,” which will transport children from pre-school age to high-schoolers.

According to Kango’s website, all drivers and sitters will be pre-screened and will go through a rigorous selection process. When parents sign up, they’ll gain access to the group of providers to make requests on an as-needed basis. Beginning the service this fall, it will be like an “Uber for Kids” of sorts.

“The Chrysler brand is focused on providing transportation solutions for families to make their lives easier,” said Tim Kuniskis, head of passenger car brands in North America, in a press release. “Together with Kango, we will make it easier for parents to manage conflicting priorities at work with the knowledge that their kids are being transported to their activities in a safe environment.”

“Kango is excited to partner with Chrysler to make its new Pacifica Hybrid minivans available to our eligible drivers,” said Sara Schaer, CEO of Kango, in a released statement. “In addition to being a green vehicle with the best mileage of any minivan, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid will help us meet the growing demand for shared carpool rides for groups of kids going places. Drivers save money on gas. Kids are delighted with the minivan’s kid-friendly features. It’s a win for everyone.”
