"To provide safe rydes for busy families"



RYDES was created when a single working mother was in a bind and needed transportation help for her children; she then discovered this was a huge need and went on a mission to fill it. 

When you’re working, juggling conflicting schedules, or simply can’t be three places at once, rely on RYDES to get your child where they need to be. Our highly qualified drivers have passed a rigorous vetting process. You are notified when they’re picked up, dropped off, and you can track their journey in real time. You can be confident they’ll get there safely with RYDES.

We’ve partnered with Cleared Match, a prominent background investigation company, to clear every driver in the RYDES fleet. Your driver not only has a clean background and driving record that is checked on a monthly basis but has also completed extensive training. You can trust that RYDES gets your child there with confidence.
